- Skittles made a really nice sketch of a bird in science. He is becoming quite a little artist.
- Twizzler's writing is really coming along. He had to come up with a word that starts with a hard u sound and he came up with "use."
- Hershey tried to follow his brothers out the door today when they were heading off to the playground. When I asked him where he was going, he pointed to the door and said, "Play mommy."

In history we learned about the American revolution. We read about how the colonists felt they were being taxed unfairly. After our history reading I gave the kids their allowance... and then I taxed them for using water during bath time, using electricity while watching TV, and using extra butter and syrup on their breakfast waffles. By the time I was done taxing them, they had only a dime each. I asked them if they thought it was fair for me to tax them like that. Then we decided to try again and this time we voted. I asked them to raise their hands if they wanted to take long showers. The vote was 3 to 1 in favor of long showers so I levied a 10 cent tax. The vote for extra TV time was unanimously voted against.. They decided to save their money and go play on the playground.
