Yesterday in the car, Hannah was bemoaning the fact that she will have to take many more standardized tests in the years to come. This was her first year of TAKS testing and while she has performed perfectly on the test so far, she loathes the idea of a whole day of testing. She was going on and on about how she never wants to go to middle school because in 8th grade you have to take 4 TAKS tests. Finally, I told her to stop. I said, "There really isn't any fruit to be gained by you going on and on about that."
All of a sudden my 7 year old nephew piped up from the back of the van and dejectedly said, "There is no fruit in middle school?!? AHH, I really like fruit."
