Teach me Math...

Last night was the Math Workshop where they teach the parents the different ways that kids are learning Math these days. Matt and I split up. He took the first half of Math Night and I took the kids to soccer practice, then we met him for the second half of Math Night. We really enjoyed meeting more of the teachers in Zack's school. What we REALLY enjoyed was learning that they are teaching the kids numerous ways to arrive at the same answer in their math equations. Some kids "get" one way and other kids "get" another. They are teaching the kids various ways so that they can learn math how they are comfortable which will make learning easier and more fun. That was exciting for us. We were glad to hear that they weren't teaching that there is one way and that is the only way...

Because it was so beautiful outside yesterday afternoon, no one wanted to eat dinner inside before practice. We got home at 8:00 and the kids were starving. Matt was cooking hamburgers at bedtime. They probably weren't hungry for breakfast this morning. Speaking of this morning, I told Sky she could wear capris because it was going to be in the 80s. Of course she bypasses all the cute ones I set out and chooses jeans. She couldn't get by without some flare of her own though.

Check her out:


That's a paper necklace she made in school yesterday.




I'm hoping she brushed her hair before school :-)

Did you see The Office last night? OMG that show is hysterical. If you aren't watching it you need to watch the first three seasons online to catch up and then tune in on Thursday nights. Snip Snap Snip Snap Snip Snap - a delightful little tidbit from last night's episode!

Have a fantabulous weekend!&
