Today's the day. Trepidation!
Son has got his 'English II' exam paper.
Considering how he had frozen over the last time he had to write an 'essay' in an exam, I was really worried.
Monday was 'English I' (Comprehension, etc.) and he came back confident that he had answered all the questions in full sentences.
Today was writing a story based on a picture which was 'pirates': 'an adventure on the high seas'.
His verdict: It was fun.
Did you complete the story?
Of course. I filled up the whole page.
That's my boy.
What a relief that there weren't tears and tantrums. Especially when a bloody wobbley tooth at breakfast caused him some distress.
