    DS10 has been planning the ultimate Pi Day party for months, given that this is the ultimate year for Pi Day. The climax was to occur, of course, on 3/14/15 at exactly 9:26:53. He is crushed to discover that it's during March Break, and all the kids are travelling - in particular the only one who would think a Pi Day party was a great idea, and the other one that would have a good time just because DS thought it was cool and he's willing to go along with that.

    As far as I know, DS has only memorized about 50 digits - but he's got most of his class to take on the first 20 or so after begging me to print the first 100,000 to post on the board in his math class.

    I think the math teacher may be the only invitee to the party...

    MichelleC, I told DS 7 about your son's PI party and he asked if he were invited. He got so excited and was very upset when I told him you guys don't live here. He said that he would have a party here at the same time, so that he knows someone is doing the same thing. But then he wondered if you guys are in the same time zone....I promised I would find out...:-)
    We are in Eastern, where are you.

    1111 - We're Eastern (Ontario). A FaceTime toast at 9:26:53 sounds like a great plan! Send us a pm and let the good times roll.

    Can't get enough pi around here. For Halloween, he made a Pumpkin Pi (sorta like this, but with a 100 digits or so circling the pi: coolmomtech.com/2013/10/8-geeky-halloween-pumpkins-diy/). I'd given up on buying him anything for Christmas until I found ThinkGeek.com (fleece pi blanket with 413 digits, pi shirt with over 4,000....).

    All the pi stuff is so cool. Love these kids!

    My seven year old took the SCAT yesterday. It was his first test ever. His scores are decent, I think... Their scoring isn't very well explained.. Anyway

    Verbal:
    455
    98%

    Quantitative:
    470
    99%

    It has been WAY long since I've added, but two quick ones come to mind.

    She's 5.

    Tonight she saw a dirt mountainous road in a movie and said "That road is treacherous!"

    Earlier in the week she argued for additional cookies; she is permitted 2 of these day, and had already eaten them. Her line of thinking?

    I can have tomorrow's cookies because it's already tomorrow somewhere else, and yesterday me would not get mad.


    Or something like that. It was yet another wahhht?? Stop, kid... just... ahhhhh.

    DD4 is back in her ballet class after a long hiatus.

    She is probably one of the oldest girls in the class and behind everyone else since she's forgotten almost everything. I asked her if that's going to bother her and she replied, "I don't care about those things. I love to dance and I'm going to have fun no matter what!"

    It's one of those moments that made me hopeful that she would not be a stressed-out, miserable person who's sadly confused about what it means to be successful in life.

    I just realised that my DD's SCAT scores as a 5th grader SSv=477 and SSq=499. are pretty darned good when you realise that she is actually just aa 4th grader age wise.
