Their school classrooms are next to one another with a door adjoining them.
N. told me he was too big for a Spiderman back pack so he went for a grown up style this time.
J., on the other hand, opted to stick with the trend of all little girls and is happy with her new purple backpack.
N. had math homework to do already on the first day. J. did not. Maybe things are easier on J's side of the classroom door? The homework is always greener on the other side!! Oh wait....that's not how it goes. Anyway, maybe J. will have homework on the weekend and N. won't. When you're in second grade everything is a competition.
