My kids have decided to boycott Learn Nothing Day. They have decided that it sounds way too boring and they refuse to participate.
The other night while we were waiting for the beach fireworks to start, I finally sat down and the free-form chatter started.
My youngest started talking about odd and even numbers, and figuring out that in one had to add an odd and an even together to get another odd. The other two had fun trying to test the theory. Other discussions were as follows:
Why do we have fireworks again?
Which one of those songs is the national anthem?
If I jump up and down in the same place, do I ever land EXACTLY in the same place or is it always different?
Why do most stars have five points? Why not four or seven? Why do Jewish stars have six points?
Why can we hear that boat horn so clearly from so far away?
I reminded them that Learn Nothing Day was coming, and that we needed to practice, so shhh!!
They laughed. And that's when they decided to boycott it. And then we started talking about boycotts...
