Today was crazy! And then...

Some days all I need is a shaky poor quality phone video to remind me in the end it's worth it...

These are not the same parents I grew up with!

My parents dog at the table, in a restaurant, having lunch with the rest of the family.

Really they stopped the sex ed lesson there!

As you have surely heard, we have started our Human Growth and Reproduction unit. We are talking about the male and female reproductive systems. Your son had a great question in today's lesson that falls outside of our learning targets for fourth grade. I suggested he talk to Mom or Dad. The question was about how does a girl get a sperm? This was after explaining that the sperm fertilizes an egg. 

I wanted to give you a heads up about your son's question. Not a bad question, but not what we teach in fourth grade. :)
