Are you smarter than a fifth grader?

Mark's assignment: Write one Veteran's Day Essay on a Veteran of your choice (to be entered into a school wide competition)

Mark informed Mom and Dad: night before

Mark's participation in writing the essay: little to none

It seems that Alan and I could still make it in 5th grade. We got a 100% and received an honorable mention in the school wide competition.

Thank you to Uncle Rick for being the coolest Veteran with the best stories that we know. It made for an interesting and exciting essay.

Dont feel bad - I have to help with school prijects all the time. The problem is that I now know that I CANT do 5th grade math and have to wait for Tom to come home to help us. Sad but true!!!!!
