Okay, it's been awhile. William has been healthy for a significant amount of time, praise the Lord! School has been keeping us pretty busy. I have 6 in school this year, a first for me and I'm teaching 2 of them how to read. I've also discovered that Elly has Dyslexia, which has been a new challenge, but I think we're starting to get it. At least we've had an entire week of school with no tears - that's got to be good, right?
In keeping with the idea of school, I was recently emailed this list of "Why teachers lose their minds." I'm only posting the funniest ones...hope you enjoy them!

  1. Those are funny! The elephant was pretty good, but I think the winner may go to the Romeo question.

  2. Thanks for sharing! I really like them all, but I think that my favorite was the "Find X" one.


  3. We praise the Lord with you for William staying healthy! Those school things are hilarious!
    David and I both have a bit of dyslexia and we turned out alright! (Don't comment back on that!) My mom (and I think David's mom too) had a book called "The Gift of Dyslexia" that might have some helpful insights for you... I'm not fully endorsing everything in it though! Here's a quote I just found from it, "The presentation of the dyslexic learning style as a talent is correct... we have observed that individuals who experience dyslexic symptoms are highly intelligent... For example, individuals who "see" the dimensional attributes in our world understand intuitively how things work. They find that they have an innate ability for fixing things, understanding engines, electronics, plumbing, construction, visual arts and other related fields. Tasks which require the ability to visualize something in a creative or different way are often simple for the individual with these talents. This is most likely why so many inventors, scientists, athletes and creative individuals find that they also have dyslexic symptoms." Such as Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Leonardo Da Vinci, Picasso, JFK, and even supposedly George Washington!
    You probably already knew all this stuff, so may God give you His wisdom as you apply your knowledge!

  4. As far as Elly I have heard both All about Spelling and Sequential Spelling are both good for kids who are Dyslexic. May the Lord continue to bless you. How have you been feeling?

  5. Thanks for the laugh! I'm still chuckling about the development of Romeo "He didn't - it was all self, self, self." Haha!
