School & Scrapbooking

It's been a week now, and the routine almost seems to be normal now. Granted, I still haven't started school myself (found out today that my online classes won't kick into gear until Saturday. Why then, I don't know.). At any rate, I sent Bebo off this morning, happy as a lark.

We're struggling, though... the task of writing is leaving him utterly frustrated, and I don't know what to do to make it better. Last week he was supposed to learn the letters M and S, and numbers 1-5. He can recognize all of those, but writing them is another story. He gets frustrated and just starts scribbling. I'm left scratching my head, wondering if I'm pushing him too hard or not enough. I hate that he had homework his very first week of school - it doesn't seem fair, though I guess the schools are being pushed so hard by No Child Left Behind that they don't have a choice.

Anyway... I'll leave you with the page I did for the Color Combo challenge this week. I've had this photo of Bebo for more than a year and I've always loved it, but was never quite sure what to do with it. I am quite pleased with the way it turned out.
