The Rat Patrol

This week, my kiddo and I have shared an old war series called "The Rat Patrol".  It's rather simple, but there's so much social interaction that it's proving a useful spur of conversations (social teaching).  I think he loves the action and I'm looking forward to the episodes that were favorites of my favorite author, Ayn Rand!  (I found out about her interest while reading this fascinating book.)

Other good things to share:
• this week's Objectivist Roundup.
• A huge laugh with this... what about fortune cookies?:
BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — More bad news is in the cards for Romania's beleaguered witches.
A month after Romanian authorities began taxing them for their trade, the country's soothsayers and fortune tellers are cursing a new bill that threatens fines or even prison if their predictions don't come true.

P.S. Cute antics:
• "It was the funnest movie day!"  (The kids hung out in the gym and cafeteria while the firemen cleared the school after a fire alarm.)
• suggesting our next ice cream maker flavor: wine ice cream
- and a conversation that occured at 3:34pm:
Cameron: What are we going to do nowwwwwwwwww? (Proper drawl of a bored kid whine.)
Andrew: We're going to sleep.
Cameron: (giggly) Toooooooo Sooooooon!
(It's rare around here to hear a bored kid tone, but what he really wanted to do was only video games.  We've made a deal that he can do as much as he likes as long as he takes the same time break from screen time.  He can spend all day doing up to an hour of video time and then an hour of other if he desires.  That was an "open table" topic that we all chatted about as I was concerned what would happen when he got his own iPod/iPad.  Open table is my precursor for family meetings where we just pause to touch base and discuss anything family related on anyone's mind.)

Having the delight of playing with hard bouncy balls in a racquetball court... nothing fragile and he was a blur of motion :)
