First Fountain Pen

by Toiny Westberry on 23 February 2011
in Tessa Pin this scrappy stuff!


We got up extra early this morning because Tess had forgotten her to do her homework.  As it turns out, first thing in the morning is a great time to do homework.  She got third in a class competition (that I completely do not understand) using the “8’s”.  A big deal since she was really struggling with remembering her multiplication tables.
I tried so hard to get a picture of her working through her problems this morning.  None are clear.  It’s possible my lack of coffee factor in this.  Tess recently switched to a fountain pen.  I remember graduating to fountain pen in third grade.  It was a huge day in my life.  Finally, finally I got to be a grown-up and write with pen.
We don’t do this in America, in fact, I don’t remember ever doing my math problems in pen, but in Germany this is still a big day.  And watching Tess this morning, struggling with her “8’s”, using a pen no less, brought back very fond memories.  I think I’ll try to snap this photo again.  I definitely need to do this before she gets the hang of it and her fingers are no longer covered in ink.
I did get an awesome photo of the old truck parked outside of Dane’s kindy.  As long as I had the camera out, I took it with me on my morning drop-off’s.
