Great idea, CFK! I dearly love to read the bragging about our kids! smile

And congrats to your DS on the A. Yay!

Mine is more of a funny than a brag...

We're homeschooling, and DS7 was working on adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators. We had worked on it a couple of weeks ago, but it hasn't yet "stuck" completely. (So he's being challenged and has to work on it--yay! laugh And he asked to try it again, so he likes the challenge--double yay!)

He did one problem and multiplied the fractions together instead of finding the LCD and adding. I talked about why this didn't work in terms of fruit: "if you have 2 apples and 2 apples (ie if the denominators are the same), then you just add the apples together. But if you have one set of apples and one set oranges, then you have to change their appearance so that you're working with all apples, all oranges...or maybe something totally different, like all plums..."

DS7 grinned his "I'm about to be clever" grin and said, "...And then we're in a pickle!"

That boy cracks me up! laugh
