A friend on a message board suggested we ask our children if they know what season it is in the southern hemisphere. I asked them all separately: Kaira and Kendra both thought for a moment and answered, “Spring”. Very good… now to ask Keianna…
Keegan and Keianna don’t even understand hemispheres, but Keianna knows about quite a few other countries, so I asked her, “What season is it in Brazil.” With confident assurance she replied, “Cinnamon!” I didn’t even try asking Keegan.
In other schoolish news: For handwriting today I printed out a question/answer page for Kaira. I left blank lines after each question for her to write her answers in complete sentences. Some of her responses were rather.. unique. Her life goals could maybe use some work, me thinks?
What is your name?
My name is Kaira.
What is your favorite vegetable?
My favorite vegetable is corn.
What country do you most wish to visit?
Whatever country is most mysterious.
What can you do well?
I can yell, “Boom” well.
What do you want to learn to do better?
I would like to find more ways to scare Kendra.
Why do you think the sky is blue?
Without the sun there would not be colors. There are color waves. I guess that blue is the color wave that goes in the sky.
