Smarty Pants

Aaron is a smarty pants...see:
He loves to figure out numbers and math problems. He reads at a 4th grade level. He finishes his homework in one minute tops. He gets bored in school. He needs to be challenged. He needs to learn how to learn. For these reasons we had him tested for a program in our school district that puts kids like Aaron in a more fast paced and challenging classroom.
We got the letter the other day that he has been accepted into the program and he has decided to go. I am so proud of him and I think that it will be a great opportunity for him to be in an environment where he will be pushed academically.
But on a more selfish note...I am not looking forward to this. You see, this is my view every morning and afternoon when my kids go to school:
The bus-stop is right in front of my house! Oh, it is so wonderful to just send my kids out the door when we hear the bus coming down the street. Now I will have to actually take off my slippers, get the kids packed in the car, and drive Aaron to a different school every morning and pick him up in the afternoon. Why do kids have to be so inconvenient? Oh well, way to go Smarty Pants!
