schooling

G is in middle school this year.  He's such a great kid.  We buy shoes at thrift stores as much as possible and this year we couldn't find shoes for G.  So we went up to the outlet and got him some sweet Adidas.  He's so pleased.

G is at school for Reading, PE, Lunch and Vocational classes.  He's taking math through FLVS.  Wow, he is taking math through FLVS.  We let him use the computer at 8:30-10:00 at night when all the other kids have been sent to their rooms.  G usually read during this time of night.  Now he earnestly hustles through the math lessons.

Last night I wandered in as he was getting to a 6 question quiz.  He took a breath, re positioned his chair then sprinted through the timed quiz.  He finished it in less than 2 minutes then let out a sigh of pent up energy.  He's so intense about this class.

It's amazing to see him apply an even higher level of concentration to this math course than I have seen him apply to computer games.
