    Thumbs up He got it!!

    Logan & I were working on long multiplication this afternoon and I got to see his face when he "got it". He's been working so hard to understand the "criss cross" and moving over a place for a couple of weeks now and it just clicked today. The look on his face was priceless. He was so excited he finished the whole worksheet (about 20 problems).

    It must have been catching because Matthew asked to practice his name in cursive. This is the boy who HATES writing anything.

    They were both so proud of themselves They are celebrating separately. Logan w/ a Wii game and Matthew with popcorn and Beverly Hills Chihuahua on Netflix instant.

    Seeing that ahhha look is priceless. Makes you feel so good inside.

    That's why I love teaching. But I miss my kids being little and seeing that look.

    YAhOOO000ooooo000ooo! That's great! Now can you teach me Algebra? I never did "get it" and I was pushed up to Geometry and Calculus anyway! Imagine giving a kid A's and B+'s just for showing up in class! That's just a part of what is wrong with the current school system.

    I almost worship you just for trying.
