So graciously Justice shares his computer with Sera on occasion and yesterday was one of those times. She was busily playing Minecraft, his favorite game, with me, his favorite person to play with. He wants his computer back and is hinting at it gently but Sera isn’t quite ready to give up her turn. So I ask if his room is clean… yes, is the laundry running ….silence…..Nooo…..then go get the machines going…. you just got mom’ed!
So, I come home to find that the kids have been minorly grounded for not doing laundry right and not putting out the trash (both kids). Pretty minor things they both know how to do *sigh* So after spending some time in their rooms for the offense to get out of their room they had to do not just the “Hokey Pokey” but “Gangam Style”. LOL They are now both happily playing Minecraft.
So Justice has his assignment of the summer… READ… anything he wants and as much as he can. He chose Aseop’s Fables tonight as his book, errr… well e-book as he has adopted the Kindle app on his computer happily and it’s one of many books I have for it. As part of the reading assignment though, I have asked him to write about what he’s read which tonight was 60 very short fables. So it’s a title of the fable and the lesson learned. Knowing that Aseop’s Fables are very short and amusingly use a wide vocabulary not found in today’s kid’s books has led to several questions about meanings of words:
- Ass (what? read the sentence so we know what’s going on in the story!)
- tyrant (completely mispronounced enough to confuse me! LOL)
He had other vocabulary that day too but these were the best ones.
