You know how math story problems can be a problem if you do not read them carefully? Well this week we had a problem that went something like this:
"Each square dance circle has 4 couples. There are 6 circles of square dancers. How many square dancers are there? (BE CAREFUL)!"

When I checked the problem and realized it was wrong (she put 24), I asked her if she noticed the "BE CAREFUL" in the problem. She said that she thought they meant for the dancers to be careful since there were so many of them. I'm not kidding.

I think God knows how important humor is for me to maintain my sanity (what little there is left) especially in this first year of homeschooling.
