|First Day of School in Montreal|
School sure has changed. I was laughing about Alex's leukemia assignment in an email that Rebecca sent to me. Then I remembered that yesterday's homework assignment with my twins was to read one of Edgar Alan Poe's tales--a mystery about a man who kills another man because of the way his eyes look, then he cuts him up and buries his body under the floor boards.
After doing some reading comprehension questions, Rebecca's assignment was to draw a picture of the evil eyes that caused the murderer to do his deed. I can't ever remember having assignments like that. Is this post 9/11 reality or just a few morbid teachers?
I am a bit worried about what the rest of the year holds. Thomas already disclosed that they are going to be talking about puberty, a topic far worse than death. :)
Hoping everyone is well.
