Remember that old show, School House Rock? I'm dating myself, I know. Well, I just wanted to say: Benjy started the Joy School today, and it totally rocked! He came out happy. He enjoyed the academics. He enjoyed the multiple breaks even more. He claimed one of the fidget toys that almost all the kids have on their desks almost all the time. He ate Italian wedding soup for lunch, and liked it. He forgot he is allowed to request a snack when hungry and climbed into my van starving to death at the end of the day. He did not shred his fingers. The staff loved him. He loved them. The only downside was a briefly anguished interlude at the Wii (did I mention they have a Wii??).
Oh, and readers? Tomorrow he wants to wake up bright and early so he won't be ten minutes late!
