    Re: The Dark Side Has Cookies.....

    DS can retain this - then have a discussion with you and go into detail and the amazing part is that he learned it or heard it weeks before. DH took DS a few years back to the reenactment of Iwo Jima and he loved it.
    We've even gotten phone calls from his history teacher explaining how they love having him in class but DS needed to remember that he was the student not the teacher when it came to the history the teacher was trying to do.
    So maybe this will be his continued passion!

    We balance each other out. Probably why God created us the way he did. Us too emotional, ya'll stalwart and calm outside.


    Not always 'calm and stalwart' on the outside , but I know what you mean!
    We tend to swallow and bury a lot of stuff. But if you do that too much, it's bound to come up like bad eggs sooner or later...!



    I feel so much better with all the help. Last year the Gatlinburg trip wasn't so hard, this year, way harder.


    That is exactly it. I will miss her so much, and her chatter, and made up songs and dances. I will just miss her, but I know, I KNOW this is good for all of them.
    YOU CAN DOOOOO EEEEETT!!!!!

    Very different than a non fiction book. Add in how many times the same time frame is taught redundantly over and over in the 12 years they are in school. As text book firms keep consolidating, it will only become worse.

    They need to find a better way to deliver the material to those with the attention span of 20 minutes. Studies have shown that if you dont drive your point in that span, you've lost them, it is just how the young brain is wired.
    Oh, I knew you weren't dissin' 'em, my friend!
    And, your right about the way they are written, but there's not much else you can do with stone-cold fact.
    Maybe the teachers should just have 'em watch "Band of Brothers" and "The Pacific" when it becomes available to them.

    The boy LOVES his history, just like his daddy!
    And that trip to Fredericksburg for the Iwo Jima reenactment was a HOOT-and-a-half!!!!!

    We met a WWII vet, named Jim Reed, who was in a special about the invasion on the history channel that we watched the very night before!!!
    He was in the 4th Marine Division and his brother was in the 3rd. Unfortunately, his brother was KIA.
    You should have seen the tears runnin' down that man's face during the reenactment. It was stirring, to say the least.

    Another good day! I spent the day at my grandma's house. Practice OGTs start tomorrow. I truly don't want to spend 2 hours in a room to take a 1 hour test.

    Re: The Dark Side Has Cookies.....

    My kids are out this week for spring break! We are going to have such beautiful weather mid to high 70's I so do love this time of year, but then again I love summer (and the heat) and fall. It can only get cold for Thanksgiving and Xmas then back to the 70's etc....

    Re: The Dark Side Has Cookies.....

    I hate chossing... Our schools spring play and guard try-outs are on the same night. I can A tell Chris ( backstage guy) that I cant come on these days because of a graded class has something planned then or B talk to Staci ( guard instructor) that I cant come because I have backstage of the play and my mom does not want me to drop that for something that is a graded class and that is high on my list then drama.
