Carpenter passed his driver’s test yesterday and now has his Learner’s Permit. He was so thrilled he was beaming:) a milestone, sharing precious moments:)
Discussions of our proposed family holiday have been under way. When mention was made of visiting a dinosaur dig a couple of the boys were extremely excited. We were expecting a reaction from the older boys but Jack Jacks’ enthusiasm has taken us by surprise.
Jem is so literal at times he makes me laugh. He will come to me when I’m feeding Bass and ask for help to dress. I answer, “I can’t I haven’t got two hands.” (I’m not literal;) He answers, “Yes you do.” and walks around me touching both hands and assuring me I do. I really should answer, “I haven’t got two hands free.” but Jem’s response is rather cute.
Actually all our children are rather literal, they take after PC there. Last week the teens and I were editing sentences and they disagreed strongly with the author. Much time were spent refuting the authors supposition, they argued that it was not a logical conclusion to draw, they did succeed in convincing me. Reading The Fallacy Detective only contributes to their analytical minds.
Barb’s post has me reflecting,
My dear friend‘s incredible photography has inspired me to take up a new hobby. My bedside table holds several volumes of photographic tomes, reserved in the hope that I may learn a few tips.
Whenever PC and I are needing to discern if a movie is suitable for the children or not, our ‘port of call’ is IMDB. The Parents Guide has a Content Advisory for each movie. This lists any possible areas of concern. swearing, adult themes, violence etc all are listed with the amount of times times it occurs, Totally invaluable in helping us make an informed choice.
