Unfortunately for me, my home school reign has officially ended, as of yesterday. And nothing is worse than KNOWING you are not as smart as the other 4th graders. My punk might be, but I am not. I struggled with his homework last night like you wouldn't believe. He picked up on what was happening long before I did.
I can handle the long division, I can handle the fractions, and the mixed fractions. But the word problems? I know that at one point I knew how to solve them. And I remember it being easy. But last night, nada. And really, who cares that SoandSo had 2343 dollars after a week and saved 343 dollars more each day and how much did he save on each day? All I know is that I want to save $2,343 a week! Show me the MONEY!
And really, if someone has to take a boat, an airplane, and a train ride then they could prolly afford to charter a plane and cut out all the middle crap anyways. It would save them tons of time in the long run. Geesh.
So wish me luck, and lets hope I can keep up with the homework. Otherwise I might have to admit to the punk that I am not as smart as I have made myself sound all year. And that would not be cool AT ALL.
Just to prove I am the prettier one, here is Charley in his
birth control glasses. Army issued of course.
And speaking of Charley, it has officially be a week since I saw him last. I am over it. He can come home now. Aarrgg. The good news? He made it over without any incident, and will be in Afghanistan itself in a few days.
