i'm always shocked when honor roll time comes around and m&m bring me slips that they are getting an award. malia's backpack is full of papers that are folded at least 2 times. i don't know how she finds things in there. i have to tell her to clean out her backpack every week. even at parent-teacher conference, her teacher asked her if she cleaned out her desk. micah leaves his homework at school sometimes or forgets to turn it in. his folder is clearly marked, one side english and the other spanish. all he has to do is turn it in.
but despite their disorganization, they are doing well, so i'm glad. i guess i can't complain. my room was very messy growing up, and i turned out alright, i think =).
