Little Mr. Smarty Pants

I realized when coming up with one of my latest layouts, I never even mentioned that after the weeks of science fair bitching, I never even mentioned that the kid placed 4th.
Well, he did.
His project was 4th in the fair which is 4th through 8th grade, so I was pretty impressed with myself...I mean him, I was impressed with Max.
The top 3 spots were held by 7th and 8th graders and so it was a big deal that he won.
He missed going to the regional fair by one spot and for about a month kinda wished that 3rd place kid would come down with chicken pox.
But now that he has his taste of the limelight, this may have been what sparked his whole new outlook on his school career and put us where we are now...approaching an entire summer of school by choice.
He's totally not my kid.
I was not like that at all as a child.
As parents we stress getting good grades and the importance of education but by no means are strapping him to set of Encyclopedia Britannica's each night and telling him, "Memorize!"
It's all him.
And it makes me proud.
And a little freaked.

This is for the project RAK challenge we had over at the ScrapYourCRAP! blog this week.

The first picture makes me laugh.....I can only imagine what was going through his mind when it was being taken!

Please tell the kid I said congratulations and that he can do anything if he works hard enough at it!

Many Blessings,
