Maybe we don't need a new math program, but just supplemental games to help him re-cement the math facts. How on earth can he master and then forget 2+5, but he remembers how to skip count by 7s all the way to 7x12?!

Xtra Math.

You know, saying "ignore this thread" to this group is like saying "don't push the big red button!" 

Homeschoolers.     They always think the rules don't apply to them.

Coming out of my long time lurking because I couldn't ignore this thread..  :leaving:

Ds is dressing as some video game character I don't know what he's called, and dd is going as Peach Cookie from Cookie Run.   dd is going to her TKD party on Friday, ds will wear his to class on Friday.  I don't know if they'll trick or treat.   It's going to be cold and possibly wet.  I'm thinking I'll just offer to buy them their favorite candy.

I am a wreck. I had to make phone calls. I was so stressed I vacuumed my entire house. Now I hear a cat crying and I have no idea where she is. I don’t care. She’s just whining to get in the house. Or go out.

Next time you have to make phone calls, you are welcome to come to my house.  I'll put the vacuum in a convenient place.  😂

I found the cat. I closed a hall door while I was vacuuming like a wild-woman And she got trapped in the hall. I opened the door and she ran out, then stopped, Turned around and gave me a dirty look and Continued on her way. Hmph.

Last night of not-Awana. I got a chill. It’s not really that cold outside, but when your system has had 5 months of 90+ degree weather.... well, anything below 75 degrees is cold.

That happened to me after our church's fall festival, even though I had my winter coat and gloves (and it was just in the 50s, I think, but also damp).  I ended up sleeping in pajamas, plus sweatshirt, plus bathrobe that night!  🤣

Morning.  I'm having a slow relaxed morning since my first class isn't until 11:30 and dd asked to work out tomorrow instead of today.     It was a good day to sleep in.  It's gloomy and rainy and icky, we're getting remnants of zeta today.  

This weekend is going to be spent cleaning up from the construction.  I need to deep clean EVERYTHING.   I'm sure I won't get it all done but I have to at least get to the main spaces, even if I don't get all the nooks and crannys.

Good Morning!!!

COFFEE!!!!~D

Friday Eve!!!!

School and work. I have a math intervention training this morning and then this afternoon I am driving all the way out to the West Side to visit a family I haven’t seen in person since..... I can’t remember when. I’m looking forward to it, even though it’s going to be a long drive. The mom just had a baby, too.

Morning. Raining and windy here, also cold. I do plan to walk my miles today, but that will have to wait until the rain isn't blowing up under my hood and getting my glasses wet.

What's cottage pie? I've only recently discovered (and fallen in love with) shepherds pie. 

It's what real cooks call shepherd's pie that is made with something that's not lamb - beef?  Pork?  I can't remember which one.  I call them all shepherd's pie regardless of what I put in it because I am old and of feeble mind and/or lazy.  Lol.

It was quite warm this morning, almost 70*, but will get steadily colder through the day.  Gas was only $1.77 at my favorite gas station this morning!  Near my house, the gas is running $2.37.  
   
It seems I am gradually starting to earn a little mailbox money again.  Most of the purchases will be by string quartets and ensembles that perform for corporate and social events, and maybe some lucky groups are getting Christmas gigs.  Could be by the end of November I will earn enough to buy everyone a popsicle!

Good afternoon!  I didn't make it here for the morning greeting.  It's Friday Eve!  I have worked and made cornbread and we have done morning basket.  Kids are doing their own stuff now and I'm having lunch--leftovers from Olive Garden that dd's bio-grandma bought me yesterday.  

We have lots to do today!

I did ground beef with turnip, carrot, celery, and a can of Italian diced tomatoes and a beef buollion cube.

Good to know. By this definition, I've been making cottage pie all along then.

How long before the blue hand goes away? It's seriously in the way of my pretty blue eggs.

You have 28 posts. I would try to get to 50 and if it doesn't work try to get to 100.

I found a math app today for extra drilling. Not timed but I can choose which arithmetic functions and how high the numbers go. Throws confetti and cool noise for correct answers and buzzes for wrong answers and keeps track of how many correct/wrong answers in the top corner. It just keeps going and going as long as you want to keep playing. Oldest keeps asking to play again and was even doing more white board math to earn the privilege. 😁

FYI: white board math is just my term for me picking problems from his textbook assignment and writing them on a white board easel for him to solve.

What's the app?

Jean, tell me to get up and do something useful!

I should spend 15 minutes in the pantry (cleaning, not sobbing), and then practice mandolin.  I am currently working on 3 songs - The Sussex Carol, Let All Things Now Living (Ash Grove), and Ninna Nanna, which was recommended by a friend from church.

I don't know. Guessing.

Get up and do something useful!  Or at least write the mandolin or ukelele music for "We are ITT!"
