Rabbit trails and learning

While (not) doing math, Bulldozer drew a picture to illustrate how he thought the brain works — lots of gears, in case you were wondering. So I loaded up a brief video on how the brain really works because I’ve learned if I want him to refocus I have to let him answer the questions in his brain. And hope it doesn’t lead to a slew of new questions.

If you think that’s messy, you should see what I cropped out.

Afterward, he said, “It’s not like gears, but it is like gears.” So we had a fun conversation about analogies.

And that’s why it took him 2 1/2 hours to do his math.

I had planned on going to the Oklahoma Land Run Reenactment put on by some homeschoolers, but there was the 2 1/2 hours of math, plus a stack of other work, and a storm blowing in and…

Oh, to heck with it, we went anyway. Most of the kids got most of their work done, and a little rain won’t kill us. Most likely.

This was our first year to attend, and we didn’t really know what to expect. It was a lot of fun. Homeschoolers are the entrepreneurist people I know. Everyone (except us) had something to sell. Bulldozer happened to have some left over cash from our Lego store trip (a minor miracle) and bought a sword and a shield and a paper airplane. Apparently, we haven’t covered anachronistic yet. Satchmo gathered his coins and borrowed a buck off me for a wooden rifle. There were also games and snacks, and even someone selling the opportunity to hold a snake. No, thank you.

    I love, love, love the gears in the brain. When are you going to sen him to a watch-making class? Has he started taking apart household appliances? Should I not be giving him ideas? Awesome stuff! And, I love the history bit!
