Blinded by science, or, Why I was an English major

Filed under: Housekeeping — Lex @ 12:17 pm

Snow day. Home with the kids this morning.

I’ve been helping V. write up the report on her science project. That means formatting the Wordpad file and occasionally helping her with spelling. It’s going painfully slowly: She hung in there for an hour and a half this morning — which is approximately forever for a kindergartner — and still got only a few sentences typed.

Chatted briefly with a friend who also has a kindergartner doing a science project, only his kid hasn’t started yet. “She’s got it down to two choices,” he said. ” ‘What is a rainbow?’ or ‘What is a cavity?’ ”

There’s obviously some room between those two topics for some discussion.
