Last night after dinner, I asked Niall if he had any homework and he informed me that he had left his homework and his journal outside at Ellen time. Said he had remembered on the way home (when we could have asked someone from Extended Day to please pick them up and set them aside), but then forgot to tell me. Argg!
So today when we got to school, he walked over to see what kind of condition all that paper was in after a night out in the damp and dew. Luckily his homework sheet was on top of his journal and protected it a bit, so the journal was in surprisingly good shape. Lucky boy. There's a lot of writing in there already that would be sad to lose.
