Lately, Bethany's nemesis has been homework. Namely, division. It didn't help that she missed two days with strep throat while they were learning it. She has had a lot of homework. She has really struggled with it.
Yesterday as the boys left for baseball and I called her in for supper (and after that, the homework she had put on hold), she made a counter offer. She said,
"How about if we have a picnic? On a blanket. I'll take my homework outside and you can bring me my supper." The girl can be hard to resist.
You know what? She got right to work.
And eating. Who knew cheez-its were brain food?
She got on a roll, and things started clicking.
After a while she needed a little break.
She got that homework done. And now she understands division. The last couple of pages were a snap!
And just like those bubbles...
...she is flying high!
