Sometimes school is confusing. Take J for instance--he usually has French for 1 1/2 hours a day, Arabic for 1 1/2 hours, and Math for 1 1/2 hours. They chose to do Math in Arabic too, so it's a good time to practice those comprehension skills.
He did math homework the other night. After he was done, the paper laid on the floor without a name for a long time, so I asked, "Hey Josiah, is this yours?" Yep, it was. He wrote his name and handed back the paper.
I looked. He had written, "haisoJ." I said, "Josiah, um, did you know that you wrote this, um, backward?"
"Sure mom," he quickly said, "the teacher knows what I mean." Oh yeah, I reminded myself, Math is in Arabic.
Well, maybe school isn't all that confusing, maybe just the mom is confused (and hopefully not the future employer!).
