Schepping Nachat -- Fathers and Sons ***Bonus Post***

As we ate dinner tonight, Moshe shared this classic exchange with our son...
(Don't miss my "real" post below)

Earlier this evening, 0ur son gave Moshe a rundown of his classes and which teachers he likes.

He likes his mechanechet (main teacher), but still wants to switch classes to be in the same class as most of his friends.

He reports good things about several other teachers as well (Arabic, Sports, History).

He is bored out of his mind in math class. He told me that they have not yet been divided into levels. Moshe just relayed that they will not be tested for another month and a half. That is a recipe for disaster! Our son is a math wiz, he's going to go bonkers if they don't give him something challenging to do in math!

He also reports that lashon (language) is boring. Moshe challenged our son, noting that "I talk about language and etomology, and you seem to find that interesting."

To which our son responded, "That's because it's you! You could talk about the ingredients in pastrami and it would be interesting!"

Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.

With love and optimism,

Your son is right. And it's wonderful that he knows he's lucky. :-)
