Day 30/365: Focus, focus, focus... That's what my kids hear so much during their day. Hurry up and focus. I am a lucky mom to be able to go help out in their classrooms on a weekly basis and I get to see firsthand how they focus. Blake is in reading right now. He is sitting with his back straight, hands in his lap, and he is focusing! It makes me happy to know that he loves learning. However, there can be a down side to all of this "hurry up and focus" stuff. Children learn at such different levels and speeds. I have mixed feelings about this because I know that my boys have trouble focusing on occasion but when they do - they rock at it! They are smart and I know they will do well in life. After all, that's all we hope for!
