In order to get Chase interested in some counting exercises I went to get some Cheerios for the 1-5 flash cards. Gotta get the older kids involved too so I figured I’d give Dex something to think about while I was off to the kitchen.
“Hey Dex, i want to get one cheerio for each dot on these cards 1 through 5. How many do I have to get?”
I was ready to walk away and let him think about it but before I had taken a step….
He had barely looked up from the YMCA camp brochure. It shook me a bit. I had to double check because it was too easy.
“How did you get that?”
“Well, I started with 5, then 4+1 is 5 and that leaves 2+3… 3 times 5 is fifteen.”
My camera ran out of video just as she saw the car.

This next one is boring after the first minute of me moving the car.

This is the table that the parent’s bought us for Christmas. It fits just about perfect.
Oh yeah – and there’s also some pictures of our New Years Eve Swim!Â It’s the first time any of us have ever been in a pool on New Years Eve.
