    DD5 is getting to know her classmates at her new school. Today, she came home and told me she had to ask one of her new friends for some quiet time since she kept on asking DD one question after another.

    I almost wanted to say karma is a xxxxx but I think she already knew that.

    When DD6 came home from one of her first days in first grade, I asked about some of the kids in her class this year. She said K and Z were in her class again. But this year K isn't running all around and Z isn't pinching her. Then said, "Maybe last year they were just too young to understand what they shouldn't do."

    DS is in a graphic design class and has an assignment to create a font. His is orange, and his potential names (so far) are:

    Orange Fonta
    A Fontwork Orange
    Fonty Python and the Holy Grail

    He also, evidently, created an Adobe Illustrator "bowling game" during free time, in which he drew pins and somehow uses a drawing tool as the bowling ball--he said this was a big hit with his classmates.

    His teacher reports he is "very imaginative, but needs to focus a bit more on his classwork." smirk

    Thank you! I think he's pretty great. The font names gave me a much needed mood boost. smile

    On a slightly related note: I remember one of our kids, as a preverbal 1.5 yo, sitting on the front steps, very intently clapping or vocalizing (all very short impulse signals), then listening to the sound reflecting off of the house opposite. Good for a solid ten minutes of toddler amusement.


    ...pronounced like the long vowel and first letter of the alphabet...

    That's funny, I remember being tickled when my DD (just turned 9 at the time) was watching the opening scene to the 2005 Dr Who series with me and openly wondered whether or not the red and the blue time vortexes that you see the Tardis traversing indicated via the Doppler effect whether the Tardis is traveling to or from you in Time!

    My DS10 is reading a new book and excitedly told me that it is about 80s technology in a post apocalyptic world with blah blahbblah and something else. I am no slouch and was also a big reader at ten but you know nancy drew and wrinkle in time and island ofvthe blue dolphins and little house books and little women. Um in 1970s I don't think I knewvtheword post-apocalyptic.

    Sorry about the typing from my phone.

    Two weeks after school started, DS16 decided to drop AP Psych to take AP Computer Science. 3 days later at open house the teacher commented that DS is way ahead of the class. Two weeks in, he suggested that DS take the weekend to look over all the AP materials for the class, and maybe take some of the practice test on Monday, to consider a move into the NEXT level. Same teacher. If he moves up, the teacher will support any gaps. If he stays put, the teacher will differentiate up.

    I love this: the teacher and the student, the real stakeholders, get to figure this subject acceleration out!
