Do You Have an Attention Monster?

The Attention Monster spots me and SNAP!  He’s stolen my concentration.  This usually happens during school at a time when I can be easily trapped…My mind bounces around and then suddenly something grabs me and pulls me out the window.  Dragons, giants, and superheroes frequently yank me outside.

And so Nathan starts school and the Attention Monster takes him into the world of 4th-grade athletics.
