Homeshool at its Finest

YES!!!
My kids would totally pay attention if I relate it to something gross.
This is an educational strategy not everyone has caught on to yet, but I'm down with it.
There's nothing funnier that tooting and burping in my house right now.
When does this stage end? Never?
Because Rusty just told Justus a bedtime story about a monster who toots fire and needs Firefighter Justus and Daddy the Brave to save all of College Station.I'll save you the gory details.
So I don't have much hope.
Love the homework.

HA!! I am laughing so hard right now... (which I needed to wake up while I try to maintain a marathon reading schedule: 50+ pages a day in order to complete six book reports before Jan 6)

Anyway.. back to the laughing... I know you said that would make me cringe, but Chewy, singing Christmas carols was hilarious.

I actually call my little brother Chewbacca... and sometimes Sasquatch, but that's another story.

And another thing... the fact that the Star Wars trilogy survived Mark Hamil is a HUGE testimony to its epic story and the vision of George Lucas.

The scene you mentioned (actually from The Empire Strikes Back - the best of the three originals) is the prime example of his wonderful (cough, cough) acting prowess.

"Nooo... that can't be... that's imPOSSible!" (for a proper imitation, you must almost, though not quite, sound like Daffy Duck on "imPOSSible"

Now, that makes me cringe.

PS - i like the dookie drawing because everybody poops, some people (so I've heard) at 6:00 every evening.

Is this Aaron's doing?!

Those boys are so smart... I wish I would have known half those synonyms when I was a wee lad.

FUNNY!

Uncle Jason will get a kick out of this! Learning would have been a lot more fun for him had he made synonyms for gross things in elm school.

My precious blonde-headed girl is now saying 'DOOKEY' (spell??) thanks to her daddy. It just doesn't even look or sound right coming out of her mouth.

Everything is 'chicken dookey' this or 'cow dookey' that or 'my dookey'. Grosss! This is just one of those words to me that I CANNOT stand.

Oh, and funny story about KK and Hayden. I unpacked and put those cute magnets on my fridge of the boys. KK still plays with them all of the time.

Today she needed a dance partner. So she goes to the fridge and grabs Hayden's magnet and starts dancing around the living room with him/magnet.

Then a look of frustration came upon her face. I asked her what was wrong and she said to me,"Mommy, it is just that Hayden is too short to dance with!" Funny! I need to get that girl a friend in Brenham!

You know, Heather, if my kids had had teachers like you in elementary school, they might have walked out a lot healthier!

Psalm 3:3 - He is the lifter of your head. YOU are beautiful trusting Him when you have little light. Isaiah 50:10 when we walk in the dark and have no light we are to rely only on His Name. No props in the dark. No props. And what I know about you is that in verse 11 it says don't light your own fire in the dark to see, don't set a torch ablaze...just walk in that darkenss holding the Unseen Hand. You are walking right!

Ok, Feces, really?

my fav is drop a load.

Hi. My name is Alanna. said...

You know, I've decided that bodily noises, sounds, and sights were not actually NECESSARY for the human race. God invented them purely for "man"kind.

Seriously, I don't think there is any other way for them to fully enjoy life. ;P!!!

(PS - I'm not putting this page up when the boys are around b/c then they'll do it NONSTOP and tell me they can b/c "Mom, Anson and Hayden do it! And for school!!!" Heaven knows what would happen if I read them the one on anuses!

the groves said...

man if they were in my class boo-boo would be #1 on their list!

The Kramer Family said...

Chelsea!

That is sooooo funny that you brought 'boo boo' up. Being from da hood, that term is near and dear to my heart. Wow, that brings back memories.
