Learning everyday....

So I was on the phone last night with my nephew when he mentioned to me that he had gotten a crab. I was very excited being as anything he gets excited about rubs off on me(yep I'm wrapped around his little finger) So as we were talking about his crab, he let me go in the midst of hes excitement! HUMM.... Oh well so  my sis gets on the phone and mentions that since she had gotten the crab for him that he had to do a lesson about crabs(how cool is that,I wish me mom would've done that while I was home schooling) But SCHI made a school lesson out of buying a crab!!!!. Yes she did it up so she bought the crab(as if you haven't established that fact already lol) but then she made him pick out everything he thought the crab would need (lesson #1) When they arrived home she proceeded to school him on the different types of crabs and what type his was(lesson #2) Then if that day doesn't seem fun enough My sis(as creative as she is) did an arts and crafts with him by making crabs out of paper plates. That really sounded like one of the funnest school days ever not only that but my nephew is now very knowledgeable on crabs. Here's a funny story: Out of all the sisters I believe I (SchII) am the ditsiest REALLY I have blonde moments. So my nephew wanted to call me back and tell me all about his crab, man he was excited So I  asked  him "what kind of crab do you have?" He answered promptly "Blue." Oh I got excited OMG I said Your crab is blue( with the image of a bright blue crab in my head).My nephew simply laughed and said'"No Auntie the type of crab it is ,is a Blue crab" and man he told me all about the crab.I have to admit by the time I got off the phone with him I was ready to make my paper plate crab and I even had thoughts of buying one. I really just rambled on with this post  but if you had to take anything away from this I would say don't under estimate your childrens school work, for you might learn a little something yourself..


  1. What a fun and creative way to buy a crab. There is a lesson in everything in life. Huh?

  2. Homeschooling can be so much fun! Just shows we can really retain info. that we're interested in.

  3. Great!! I just love how homeschooling add a whole nothe dimension to live!lol
