Brendan was entertaining me last night with his tale of how he's managing the limited time between classes in Middle School. He has a locker with a combination, and it's taken him a little while to get the hang of it. After he gets his morning books out of his locker, apparently he does the first two numbers of the combination and stops the dial just a few numbers past the second digit. So, when he comes back to switch books before he heads downstairs for the afternoon, all he has to do is flip it to the third number in the combination and open the door. Clever little thing.
Also, he wants us to let him do running club. Because he was too light on the extracurricular activities :)
