Yep, Christmas vacation is still going here in ol Northern California...this starts the 3rd week that my children have been home....
it has rained, been freezing (no sorry to my dear friends in Norway and other parts of the country where they live in a walk in freezer), just a bit of a chilly wind that causes this sun deprived woman to shiver like a wet chihuahua. The kids have been inside ALOT....are you catching the gist of what is happening? They are on each others nerves which in turn causes me to want to throttle them.
So I bring out the big guns, math problems to the groans and disgust of all! They did multiplication drills, averages and long division! Oh the horror. I had my oldest disecting an eyeball on paper, quizzing him relentlessly on lens, cornea and other liquids in your eyeball...gross stuff there! My twins brains are full of 4 tmes and 3 times and I even made them do their 5 times tables.
I am expecting to be investigated shortly by some protection agency because I didn't allow them to let their young skulls become mushy and full of nothing!
Then to add insult to injury, ha ha I took pictures of my torture...gosh I love being the adult in the situation! mwha ha ha...
for you who are looking to see some of these intriguing and somewhat stimulating pictures evolve into a layout, pop over to my other blog....Anne of Alamo! See pic #1 in all it's glory!
