    More funny than braggy:

    DS2 woke up in the middle of my history class(long story about babysitters skipped), announced loudly that "there's a lot of planets outside," and went back to sleep.

    The prof said "yes, indeed" and went back to teaching dead languages.

    (Can we have a "funny stories I just can't tell everyone" thread, most of mine aren't really brags, just cute kid stories with one wierd element that makes them a bit less tellable.)

    The top line he traced.  The second red line he copied while I coached him using HWT words.

    This he did on his own.  He just recently learned how to write # 5.

    I'm not sure if I showed you the astronaut yet.  We're working our way through a how to draw book.  The print letters I can just just tell him and he'll write them, he already knows how.

    So, not a huge brag I guess since he's following instructions, but I'm a very proud Mamma.  He was 3.5 last month.

    I want to share another cute brag.   I noticed a while back that ds always creates a mixture between the words "empty" and "nothing" whenever he has a reason to use either of these words.  "nenmpty", "numpthing", "nempting", "netty", that's all I can think of.  He knows about the number zero.  It is obvious to dh and me that he is doing this intentionally.  For one thing he uses variations.  When he misunderstands a word he mispronounces it the same way each time.

    With our first year of crazy skipping in (5 years)DS8 presented his report card to me. As a part time student he got a B in Language Arts, a B in geometry and a C in integrated science. All three of his teachers commented that the quality of his work was an A, organization....not so much, which pulled his grades down. I'm so proud!!! I can't believe this crazy idea actually worked! My son loves it and is already planning for next year!
    YAY for our side!
