First day of school surveys

B's first day of 2nd grade was a little rough. The transition is pretty major and he's only been here a few days, but he's handling it like a champ. I'm so impressed by his positive attitude and couldn't help but smile when I read about his favorite hobby on the paper he brought home today:
Definitely my child.

Tonight his homework was to fill out yet another survey about himself and he agonized over one question on it for at least an hour. "Who or what do you like to write about?" This simple question caused crying, torment, shutting himself off in his room and refusing to speak to anyone. Then he came up with the perfect way to word his answer, bounced cheerfully out of his room, wrote it and went on with his evening.

Definitely my child.
