to DAVID.RUSSELL, me
This is Seraphine Darby. Are iStudent and iParent the same thing? If
so, what is a iParent access key? I need to be able to check on my
grades without having to rely on my parents. Besides, I want to be
able to fix the problem before my parents find out if possible.

(he answered her very quickly telling her to go to the office to get it setup) That last sentence was just too good not to share tho! AHAHAHA 🙂

She got caught off guard with a very bad grade and is working on fixing it this week! I’m happy to see her thinking about being proactive with her education.

How to get ungrounded…

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.

And thus the year starts…

Previously the kid’s teachers were not into writing assignments or spelling and that is why both kids have blogs to write on as I view writing as something just as important as reading, math and science!

FINALLY this year Sera has a teacher who is assigning creative writing type assignments…. the latest is one on adverbs. Three random letters were assigned to each child to write sentences with and Sera was lucky enough to get “N”, “T” and “Y”. Now “N” and “T” are simple enough there’s a decent list of adverbs that go with those letters but “Y” was the hard one. Finally after a net search and a Facebook post asking for help she came up with a couple good sentences for the assignment.

The best of the bunch though is:

“Yellow yaks Yodally yelp advice.”

“Yellow yaks Yodally yodel advice.”

I wish I could be a fly on the wall when the teacher reads this!
