Letter from School

Last week, the kids brought home a letter addressed to the parents of Jacob and Lucy Hargreaves.

Full of apprehension, we opened it and discovered that there was to be a presentation night for the school on Tuesday night and both Jacob and Lucy were to receive awards.

It turns out that only five kids in each class received awards.

Lucy is always drawing and colouring in, so I guess it was no real surprise to see her receive the award for Arts and Crafts.

The surprise was that my little boy, who always says "I can't remember" when I ask him what he did at school today, got the prize for mathematics. Funnily enough, on the way in to the presentation (before I knew what they were getting), he suddenly pipes up with

"Daddy, did you know that nine plus five plus four is eighteen?"

Quickly adding them up myself (tick, tick, tick), "That's right Jake! Well done!" :)

Isn't it wonderful how your kids can surprise you?
