One of the things we worked on at the store and at home was how to tell how much something weighed - comparing lb and 'pound' and oz and 'ounce'.  She continued with another Greek lesson at my behest...then I had to go to work and it was to Daddy for the rest of the day.

While we were getting ready for the town run this morning she was looking at a picture chart that was supposed to be filled up with pictures until grade 12.  She said that grade 12 was about science.. so the conversation turned to 1- you learn reading/writing/math to be able to understand Science, which is all of those things put together.. and 2.- in homeschool she can be many grades at once.  She said she was in second grade now, right?  I said it would all depend on what books she chose and what she learned - and she could learn at any pace now.... and that some of her things were still first grade, and some even third grade...

We watched How to train your Dragon 2 as a family - it was so sweet, both the movie, and the three of us cuddled together watching it :)
