Random musings from a Wife, Mom, Homeschooler, Student, and Friend

>We had a rough day home schooling today. The Boy is usually a whiz at math, but double digit division has just baked his nugget. He is so freaked out that he is getting the simple components (like 14-8=6) wrong. This tested my limited patience today. This is where grace comes in, both from my son who didn’t hold my frustration against me, and the Lord who gave me an idea to help him. Turns out, that all of the numbers in straggly rows and columns confused him. I printed up the same equations in Excel in a graph pattern so that each digit had its own box. Much better results!

My Dr. Bronners soap and coconut oil arrived today. I did a test patch with the coconut oil on my hand–wow! Major improvement over regular lotion!
