The boys are back to school. While both protest about the agony of it all, they seemed to have enjoyed their first day back yesterday. I'm feeling a bit sleep deprived because the idea of a regular routine is still a few weeks off. Consequently, I'm getting up an hour earlier than usual to make sure THEY get up on time. I try to go back to sleep, but the ensuing chaos precludes that.
Matt came home with Geometry homework on day one. He had to find the next elements in several series, then explain how he derived the solution. Here's a sampling. (I expect Angie to have them in a snap. I got the two with names quickly. The one with letters took longer, and when we figured it out, it was one of those "doh" moments.)
What are the next two letters/names in each sequence?
George, John, Thomas, James
George, Thomas, Abraham, Alexander...
Here's some first day of school pictures over time (2004, 2006, 2007, 2008)
