A Boy After My Own Heart

So you're familiar with the earth's layers right? From inside out they consist of the inner core, outer core, mantle and crust. Julio is studying all about the earth right now and he brought home this a couple of days ago-it was too cute for me not to blog about.

Note the text underlined in red: "My favorite part of the earth is the crust. Because it has candy."

I feel exactly the same way-there's no candy in those boring core regions.

Since he's not normally one of my sweet-toothed children (that would be a two-way tie between Margarita and Juan Carlos), I'm thinking it's because the earth they made kind of looks like a big jawbreaker. Don't you think?

And look at his teacher's comment: "Be sure to focus on the topic given" :) I'd have a hard time focusing if I were staring at a big jawbreaker. Geesh!

The boy is ahead of his time. Not everyone is able to focus in on what's really important! Go Julio!

Tears Gabs...and laughter...

Oh WOW!!! What a cutie!!
I'd say the crust is chocolatey and the inner core is custard.
