Last day of school for T.

And it was a half day. In theory, I was going to have two sitters and R. and I were going to go out to dinner. But the one who volunteered to work then changed her mind in favor of packing for the trip she is taking that will cover the entire time the kids are out of school (between regular school and their summer program). *sigh*

A. has school through her half day on Thursday, but you'd never know it by her backpack, which vomited up way more than the usual amount of paper ... stuff.

She demanded "rocket math", which is Mathmateer on iOS, and which we got for T. when he was in kindergarten. I assume they've started using it in school. We have some placemats with addition math facts, but apparently I resisted the temptation to buy the times table one. Silly me. But then I thought, this is a girl who owns two pink calculators. So I showed her how to input the multiplication questions into the calculator. Seems like a valid life skill, altho I have no idea whether this is acceptable in a school context or not.
