Catching a gnat

Today was our first day of a new school year. We actually did almost a full day's worth of work around here. For me, though, a good bit of it felt like I was chasing a gnat - Wild Man. He was soooooo squirrelly today that I was about to go crazy. He made a joke about something while we were reading, so he felt the need to make the joke 40 more times in the next 10 minutes. He couldn't sit still for more than 10 seconds. He was the same way with his workbook. I don't know if it was time of day, the stormy weather, or what, but this will get old really fast. Maybe we'll try a cup of coffee before I have him do reading and spelling with me. Maybe.

Is the coffee for him or you?
