I'm not sure the phrase "playing hooky" is universal in other English-speaking cultures. Around here it means I'm skipping school.
And I am--so I can go to school with my son. They have a wonderful program at Sunset Hill Elementary called "Watch D.O.G.S." and I'm the D.O.G.S. today. (Dads of Great Students) Of course, I'm not typing this at Owen's school; I'm having lunch at home during a break. What I've learned today:
1. Reading is everything in an elementary
2. Recess is still fun, but chaotic (and not nearly long enough)
3. I'm really proud of my kid
Owen even devoured his broccoli first at lunch. I wouldn't have had the willpower. (My sugar cookies would have been gone in five seconds.)
Enjoy your Tuesdays (or Wednesday for those of you down under).
