Random Tid Bits

  1. Isaak got a gigantic keyboard, a sweet new bigger screened Kindle Fire and more for Christmas. I got the biggest reaction when he opened his Under Armor Boxer Briefs. I think he thought that when he put on his undies he'd look much like the man on the package. Ha! Skinny boy needs to work on those muscles. He actually popped up, and changed into his undies right then and there. No shame.

  2. I watched a documentary last night on a snowstorm that happened in 1949. Boy was that horrible! Livestock and people froze because it happened so fast, and the wind was so bad! They didn't have equipment to predict the storm, or to take care of the snow. It was horrible!

    It snowed here. One of my friends said, "The weather man said we were just going to get a dusting." Well compared to the 1949 snowstorm it was a dusting! It was lightening and snowing at the same time.

  3. My sister never believed my green pepper relish tray trick. She specifically told me not to put green peppers on a relish tray, so I made one where that's all I put on it. She said, "I know you're messing with me. Get the real one out here."

    I ended up making tasty fajitas with all those peppers the next day. Take that!

  4. I have 2 of my classes fully prepared for. I mean everything done! I'm just having a hard time getting into the last one.

  5. We've been trying to work with the boys on math. Just to bump them up with things they weren't getting. Mica needs to get the meaning of - show your work! Isaak gets all emotional about things he doesn't get.

    Isaak got all good grades except for Social Studies. Imagine that...his core teacher teaches that. He got a C. That's the first for him. I woke up one morning at 5, couldn't go back to sleep, and emailed his teacher asking for the name, edition and chapter of their book. I ordered it on Amazon. It's Mica's favorite subject. I'm going to try to read the book with Mica by acting it out. Sometimes I do think if we didn't work, homeschooling would suit us well. I feel like we're doing a lot of teaching at home. Anyhow I had a teacher when I was Isaak's age that acted out Social Studies. I love it! Sometimes I think different kids need to be taught differently. Isaak's a visual learner like I am.

I hope your Social Studies trick works with him! I'm impressed you've worked so far ahead on your classes too!

I'm also a visual learner. I can read something and almost immediately forget it, but I do remember scenes played out in front of me.

Boy, I wish we could put on undies and magically look like the package models. We'd all be Victoria Secret Angels lol

That sounds like an interesting documentary to watch. I'm not a fan of snow.

Lightening and snow at the same time? Yuk! I think it's fun that you're acting out the social science. I hope it helps. :) LOL on the undies. My son asked me NOT to buy him undies and socks this of course, I did. It's a must if they ask you not to, lolol I wish I'd have been smart and just wrapped undies and socks (like the green pepper tray for you though, he'd have probably caught on that I was messing with him). :)
