Ducks and school

Last night, I counted up D's charity money. He had $20, enough for either chicks, ducks or geese from heifer.org. D decided to go for the ducks, which are unsurprisingly very popular in China, so that's what we ordered.

C has lately really enjoyed playing school with D, although I'm not sure that the feeling is mutual. C, of course, wants to teach D the stuff that she's learning right now in 2nd grade. Here are some problems from a worksheet she wrote out for D (I think he mostly provided the answers while she wrote them out):
  • 10 + 10 = 20
  • 3 x 3 = 9
  • 100 + 200 = 300
  • 1 + 99 = 100

She marked the page A+. Later, my husband asked D what 6 x 2 is. D thought about it, and said that since 9 + 3 is 12, that's what 6 x 2 is. I don't exactly follow that, but he is right.

In school, C is learning about Julius Caesar. C really likes history.
