  1. Denise,
    I love how you explain math…My girls are 5 and 3, I was very bad at math when I was young, but I’m loving math as days pass…am I sane?
    I do want my girls to have a different experience, and blogs like yours, and places like living math, etc. help me with that.


  2. Why, thank you, Silvia. You make me blush!
    Seriously, that’s my favorite thing about homeschooling — the chance to learn to love the things I hated in my school days. For me, it’s history: horrid, dead, boring in textbooks, but wonderful to learn about from real books.
