Jacob has a test today in math. It is on area and circumference of a circle using II (3.14). He had to figure out the radius or the diameter with the given numbers. I explained it to Jake and he was still frustrated. Brad said we should call Robbie, so we did. Rob got off work at about 8PM (after working 12 hours). He was at our house by 8:15. About and hour and 15 minutes later, Jake was the king mathematician! He had a handle on it. Robbie even made up a few quizzes for Jake to take before Rob left. Robbie is amazing at math. He is working for an auditing firm in their tax department. Four people have been laid off in his department, but not Rob! We know that after tax season anything could happen, but Robbie is worth his weight in gold. This is a great job and he is doing very well, but they are lucky to have him (no bias from his mother :)!)
Robbie called this morning, on his way to work, to see how Jake felt. He wanted to know if Jake felt ready for the test. Jake was very confident and really wanted to do well. We'll see how well, later today. Stay tuned...
What my favorite thing of all of this is the unselfish way Robbie has been. He helped Jacob and he truly wanted him to do well so Jacob would feel good about himself. Robbie shows his love in many ways, but this is one of my favorites! Thanks Robbie, I love you and I'm so proud of you!
I love to scrapbook. It is therapuetic for me. I like the organization of it, I like the creativity value and I love to record our memories! A great time for me is to grab a cup of coffee with vanilla creamer and a small squirt of whipped cream, be in comfortable clothes, have the tv set turned toward my area in the family room and scrapbook while my children are at school. This perfect combination only occurs when there is a full moon so I have to take advantage of it when I can:)!
