My Calendar is Bigger Than Yours

I am homeschooling a 7 year old girl second grade. Her name is Esli. Many of you know her through my previous posts. Homeschooling can be so much fun.

Teacher: When is your birthday?

Student: November 26

Teacher: What day is November 26 on?

Student: (Looking closely at the calendar) Hmm. It's on Monday. But on my calendar at home it's on Sunday.

Teacher: Is your calendar at home this year's calendar?

Student: Yes.

Teacher: Then it should also be on Monday.

Student: No no, my birthday on my calendar is on a different day because my calendar at home is bigger than yours.....( sigh )...it is SO hard to teach teachers.

Can YOU repeat all 66 books of the Bible by memory?

Hey Mrs. Arakawa,
I'm sorry, I haven't been on here very much. Life has gotten so busy and maybe too busy. Thanks for stopping by and it helps me to remember I need to stop and smell the roses once in awhile!!!!!!!!! Thank you for your friendship!
Much Love...

Hello Adrian,
Esli would have sung the Old Testament also but decided against it because it was too long for the blog. Glad you enjoyed the New Testament books in song.
