This week, Sebastian had Spring Break, so we took advantage of his time off and went to Austin for a few days. As I normally do while away from home, I republish a Sundays Are For Sebastian. This one comes from a couple of years ago, when Seba was eleven.
Sebastian is my eleven-year-old and he says some of the funniest things–we have no idea where he gets his material since his mother and I are rather boring, serious people.
Sebastian is now in the sixth grade and the expectations and workload have increased dramatically. He was working on a study guide for an upcoming test in history.
The question: “Name four things that men and women did in a ‘hunting and gathering’ society.”
“1. Hunt. 2. Gather.”
When I questioned him on his response, he simply stated: “I don’t think they did anything else.”
