First week of school

I really want to blog, but I'm tired.

A few things that should be documented...

Today is the first Friday of the school year with the boys and me at our new school. Conversation on the way home included:

Keaton: Mom, did Robert Earl Keen used to be the president?

Tucker (a question that I'm certain was inspired by his renewed rubics cube obsession): Mom, when do you think I'll get to learn algorithms?  Like sixth grade?

Keaton: Hey, you know what I get to do now?  Study.
Me: What are you studying?
Keaton: I don't know yet. But I get to study this year. You know how in kindergarten I didn't get to study?  Well, in first grade, we STUDY.  Awesome, huh?

Keaton: I need to learn how to play the banjo. You're supposed to learn how to play the banjo before you play the guitar.

Tucker: At 2:15 p.m. it was 100 degreess outside, but we were checking it with a rotary thermometer, so that could be approximate.

Lots of life changes, but the Hickman boys are still the Hickman boys.

I'm sorry I kept him from studying! ;)

Oh, yes! I can tell it was detrimental to his learning! Hope you had a great week!
