Perhaps I've mentioned it before that our children aren't too keen about doing any kind of homework and it's often a battle to get them to sit down and spend the requisite 15-20 minutes required to work through a few pages.
So today when Charlie tasked the children with completing their allotted homework, he was amazed at how quickly and correctly the children had completed their assignment. This is the e-mail message that he sent me at work:
Your stinker pie children have found the answers in the back of their workbooks. OMG!!! They were flying through the pages and getting everything right!! Then Elizabeth told me their dirty little secret. Now William and Carolyn are mad at Elizabeth for telling me. Who do they think they're dealing with? Do they think I'm dumb?! I was already suspicious that something was amuck when they were adding and subtracting three digit numbers without showing any work or using their fingers to count. My sweet little Elizabeth turned in to the stool pigeon!!!
These are some smart kids considering I didn't figure out that the answers were in the back of the book until at least sixth grade.
Although I suppose with the three of them constantly working together, I shouldn't be at all surprised.
