I just had one of those "You Know You're Home Schooling When. . ." moments and posted it to Spirited Sons collection of funny things. Here was my post.
You know you are homeschooling when... You kids get out all the disposable bowls and cups and make a large stack almost touching the ceiling. And instead of getting mad (which you are tempted to do) you say "now count them" and consider buying extras just for manipulative play.
Guess how many cups they had stacked together 131... But I see now that I missed an opportunity, only a few more cups and we could have found out "how many cups does it take to reach the ceiling".... Alas, I am sure there will be a next time.
We are getting ready for our kitchen remodel this weekend. DH purchased enough frozen meals and crock pot meals and disposable dishes for us to live without a kitchen for ten days. So these cups were needed. Hopefully the kids got their fill and we wont see any more disposable dishes construction.
