Not in their entirety, but here are a few snippets of the first-day-of-school questionaire I give my children each year.

"For lunch I had ....."
Kendrie: 2 tacos
Kellen: Pizza sticks
Brayden: Crap. It's school food -- cold meat and hardened cheese.

"Lunch was actually pretty ...."
Kendrie: Fun!
Kellen: Average
Brayden: Bad

"One goal I am setting for myself this year is ...."
Kendrie: Make new friends
Kellen: Just be myself and have a great time.
Brayden: Stay on all the teachers' good sides.

"One thing I am really looking forward to this year ..."
Kendrie: Spanish
Kellen: Lunch
Brayden: Calling all the sixth graders "Sixlets"

"When I grow up, I really want to be ...."
Kendrie: Like my mom and dad.
Kellen: A CIA Ninja
Brayden: An actress and a vet

"I think this quiz mom makes us do is ...."
Kendrie: Fun
Kellen: Fun
Brayden: Fun even though I've taken it 47 times already.

What's funny is Brayden is actually NOT the one I would label "sarcastic" ... yet after reading her answers, I might have to re-think that opinion.

Brayden is just turning into a Middle Schooler! Be patient, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Ok, it's in a few years, but it's there!

I love this idea! I'll have to use it down the road...hopefully, not for a few more years. :) Do they ever go back and reread them?

I think it's great that you get them to do this quiz. And I love Brayden's answers. "Crap" LOL. That's what I always thought of school lunches!
