Ernest delights in his writing.
I worked very hard to have patience with him tonight as we scrambled to edit a paper due at 11:55. Because of both of our attitudes, we had a marvelous time making each sentence better by thinking of better words. His eyes were bright as he flipped through his mind’s thesaurus and vocabulary list. This kid loves words.
It was down to the last second, but we got that thing turned in.
I don’t think he will procrastinate next time though. There were tears of regret in his eyes when he realized he had missed “family night”.
