She read some aloud to me today for school (she has to read aloud for homework) and I found that it is actually a lot more age-appropriate and engaging than I remembered, but still, it's quite the grown-up tome for a second-grader.


    DD9 read Little Women last year and loved it. She enjoys historical novels better than any others. What a great book, I remember reading it three or four times when I was younger!


    The Little House on the Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder are good. I loved mine so much, I've kept them and hope my son will enjoy reading them like I did. There's a lot of fascinating lessons to be learned from them.

    I'm bragging on my son setting up addition problems for his dad this morning. On a napkin, he wrote out double digit problems and then solved them. For a "super challenge", he had dad write the number one billion out and wanted to learn to add it to one thousand. (He's still not understanding that big numbers don't always mean difficult to add numbers!)

    I wanted to keep that napkin, but it got smeared up with maple syrup. *sigh*

    Thank you for mentioning the Fly Guy Series. I had not heard of these before. DS4 read book 1 today smile We are off to the library in the morning to pick up a few more.

    Not a brag but I couldn't resist sharing this chuckle. DD8 was getting dressed this morning and asked out of the blue, "What would happen if you got your ears bitten off by a giraffe?"

    Ametrine,
    This is what the magic of digital cameras was made for! You can "save" all of that stuff that you can't actually keep, and it will all fit on a flashdrive.

    I have a funny "brag" story about both of our DDs. DD14 is a freshman at Interlochen in voice. Wants to perform at the Met in New York City someday. And she's academically gifted, too. So, DD14 is marveling over and over about how she gets to go perform in New York over spring vacation. DD8, also gifted, sick of the boasting, looks up and vehemently says, "Yeah, well, I'm probably going to (old home town) over my spring break where I have real friends. All you have in New York is a dream!" Once we picked up our jaws off the floor, we all burst out laughing, both DDs included.

    DS6 was coloring today. Instead of drawing spiderman or a cow or something, he drew a color coded picture of neurons and synapses, and correctly labled the parts. The sad part is, I don't know all the details about neurons, so I genuinely had to ask him how one works, and he had to explain it to me. Yet another humbling moment.

    DD11 has been going to the same library for 11 years. He would never go to check out or ask for anything. Yesterday, he went up and asked for his computer print out. PROGRESS
