    A reflective moment:

    On the 2nd day of school this year, I had one of my 3rd grade girls come up to me smiling. She had a question for me. "When do we get homwork?" I responded by explaining that I was going to wait a couple of weeks. Her smile quickly turned into a frown. I asked her why she became so sad. Her response, "I have been waiting all summer for homework." I was puzzled, and explored this response. She explained that she could get her dad and mom to send time with her if she had homework. Mom helped with math and dad read with her. I was able to put a smile back on her face by giving her a set of flashcards and a book to take home.
    I just thought I would share this story.
