It’s in the jeans: my boy can do math!

I am overweeningly papa-proud of my son Isaiah, who took 4th place in the central Wyoming 7th-grade math competition.

Isaiah Math PrizeThe kicker:  Isaiah isn’t in the 7th grade.  He’s in the 6th grade, but he placed above thirty or forty other kids anyway.

The kicker to the kicker:  He didn’t practice at all.  He just walked in cold and did it.  In his jeans.

The kicker to the kicker to the kicker:  His parents don’t work with him on math.  We bought Teaching Textbooks and he just does it, without ever asking for help.  He thinks math is just FUN.

I wish I could claim that all my kids are geniuses or that we have discovered the secret to home schooling in math.  But the reality is just that Isaiah is a pretty cool kid.  He makes math look easy.

Writing now….
