Well we just finished watching up and though I felt it was a pretty good ending the kids were sad that the old man lost his house. I can see that, but it sort of misses the point. So here is the question. Is it for me to spell out the point. Being someone who loves to fill people in, help them get the point, show them the way, it is really hard for me not to. Yet sometimes the best things you learn in life your learn by yourself. Definitely one of my tougher challenges.
It was kind of interesting watching a movie about a flying ship when we created this underwater explorer before dinner. I am telling you Magnablox are easily the coolest upgrade on lego you can imagine. As a teacher of math it is also nice to see all the solids I deal with in class being represented and created by my four year old. The challenges of putting the pieces together is dynamic problem solving hidden in play. Or is that just a definition for play.
Seeing as I am blogging I thought I might was well share our dinner with you all. We had leftover spaghetti and meatballs. The spaghetti was the really thin stuff. I prefer the thicker stuff but it was still. The potato salad was a pumpkin and yam salad. It was good but sweet. The kids were not having any of it. The green salad was nice with a vinegar onion dressing. Finally a shot of the youngest looking ready for dinner.
