School day.… Day 550 18MAY10

We spent most of today doing school work with both the boys. Joshua had his teacher here this morning and he did pretty good, he got a weeks extension on his spelling words in order to get alittel more practice in. He is working on those weird words in our language like "does"  and "there" vs "their" which mess up most adults. Jarrod had a bunch of algebra to get through so I worked with him this afternoon while Joshua was getting tutoring at the Children's Cancer Center. We also worked on his world cultures class which is at least a little more fun than algebra :) Afterwards I got some yard work taken care of and took a short break before it was time to get dinner going. Renee and Joshua got home right on time to eat and then take it easy for the rest of the evening. All in all a productive day for all of us.

Sounds like a good day. Joshua, I used to be the best speller and now I find myself wondering differences in words like loose and lose. I still remember
"i" before "e" except after "c" if that helps. As for your Algebra, Jarrod, what they teach now is way beyond what we learned in the old days. Cultural events, history and English were my favorite classes.

Very glad to hear all is well and on an even keel.

Love, Miss Laura and Frank

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Hang in there with the spelling and don't let it get the best of you. Words are powerful. I've got an e-mail I'm going to send to your Dad about an 8th grade final exam given in 1895. It's an eyeopener for certain.

Glad to hear all is going well.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
