Oh please no! Please don't let Jake see these kids spinning their pens! He will just have to do this and then he'll be dropping his pencil more than he does now...this is one of the things that makes me want to stick a fork in my eye! Do you all have any idea how many times we lose pencils around here daily??? I've started making the kids check the pens and pencils in and out...the school day is not over until you have turned your writing utensil back in to the mom! Sounds mean and it probably is...but that's how I roll!
