My young da Vinci

Girl one came dancing the other day . . . an early birthday, present, Mom. I made it myself. You'll love it!  My sprayer had broken a few weeks earlier. Girl one was delighted that the nozzle can be removed and the honey cap reapplied to keep water from spilling.

She’s on a bit of a roll. Yesterday she passed me doing dishes to say that she had an especially good lesson planned for the school she runs. (She has been principal and main teacher of her own school for a few years now. She runs it for her sister or whatever younger children she can find at school. There are folders, plans, supplies . . . it is a very serious affair.)  It’s on David and Goliath, she provided, but I didn’t pay much attention as she went by.

My husband pointed out a little later that Girl one’s student (Girl two) was currently with vigour, slinging rocks at a picture of Goliath.

    Now that is just like her grandmother Jo. She had her two brothers for her “school” and the lessons were what ever she had in school that day.All went well until she got to multiplication. They refused and she was going to make them.I had to explain that age 4 and 2 were a little young for that.However I wounder if she was the reason they both excelled in math I love your writings

    What ingenuity! Took me a minute of looking at the picture to see what she’d done. You have a MacGyver on your hands…and that’s a GOOD thing! She didn’t even need duct tape for it!!! (Yes, I know. I’ve severely dated myself by bringing up MacGyver, but my kids still remember all the creative fixes he came up with on that show!)
