Kids are on spring break this week. So I have decided to tag along and take a couple of days off to enjoy the spring. Weather in New England has been very non-typical. We hit upper 80s one day and had to turn on the air conditioner.
I had an interesting conversation with my 4th grader the other day. I received an email from his teacher to what it looked like an all parents mailing list saying that she gave some students some homework for the spring break because some of them didn't do so good on a homework they were supposed to be very solid on. I asked Tristan if he had any homework for the break, he answered no. I said "Your teacher said she gave homework for the spring break." He answered "That's for only people who didn't do well on the other homework". I said, "So you did well on the other homework?" His answer: "I didn't do the other homework." My eyebrows raised and repeated what he said "You didn't do your homework?" His answer: "I used my homework pass." I never figured out how kids get these homework passes. I assume they get them if they do well on certain things but who knows. "How do you get these homework passes?" I asked. "I keep them in my backpack, and use them when I want to." What kind of answer is that? "So you used your homework pass to not do the homework so that you don't have to do extra homework because you didn't do bad on the homework you skipped?" It took him a few seconds to digest what I was saying, but in the end he grinned and said "yes." "Does that make sense to you?" I asked. "No," answered he, and burst in to laughter. It must sounded really funny to him no that I put it that way.
This J.Crew jacket is a size 00 regular that I purchased from the store last week. J.Crew is having a 30% off sale now that will put this jacket to $118. (orig. $278, item #64549). The jacket is very well made. The colors include - various pink, blue, gold, white, and green. It's very versatile. It can be paired with a lot of different outfits. The golden buttons are very cute. It's meant to be cropped on regular sized people, but on me, it looks more of a full length jacket. Same thing with sleeve length. This jacket looks best when buttoned, and it fits nicely but not snug on me. I can fit a thin sweater underneath. I don't recommend it to anyone smaller than me. I would say the fit is similar to a Loft 0P. The pictures somehow made the colors look washed out. Hopefully you can see more clearly when you click on them.
