let the exams begin.
this was full with sharpened #2 pencils this am.
i handed these out like candy as the three boys left for school today.
now if i was a truly awesome mom, 
i would have etched words of wisdom on the side of each pencil
BUT i was just pretty excited to have the pencils sharpened.
(i usually just hand out non sharpened pencils !)
