Siblings on Facebook

You must understand, my son rarely comments on his sister's Facebook page (although he says she stalks him on Facebook).

So, you can imagine my smile when I read this ummm... conversation?  A friend had asked Stephanie what math curriculum they use for homeschooling. 

Christopher says:

It's a mystical math curriculum that was forged in the fiery pits of mount Doom. It includes calculus freshman year of high school, linear algebra sophomore year, complex analysis junior year, and finish with a bang with Introduction to Chaos Theory senior year (it was forged in the fiery pits of mount doom, only fitting).

I probably should say that Stephanie's husband has a PhD in math (statistics)...

Added:  The math students in question are only six (almost seven now) and eight years old.  :)

Hee hee! That math would be beyond me, but maybe their children have inherited the math gene from their dad!

Fun stuff!

Not sure if this has already posted,(and sorry that this isn't relevant to the current post!) but I wanted to give you a heads-up that something is amiss with your email address. Thanks very much for sharing your thoughts.

Love that! :)

I love Facebook for just this reason! I get to read the insightful and often comedic conversations of my kids who all live far away at the moment. And they're fine with Mom listening in! Your son has a wonderful sense of humor! =0)

That Christopher is a funny guy! My girls very much enjoy stalking and commenting on one another's Facebook updates. They keep me in stitches.

This is SO funny!
My own son (now aged 27, married, father of two) hated math from the beginning. He used to think that John Saxon had a personal vendetta against him...and said so on an almost daily basis. He seemed to think that Mr. Saxon had included those witty word problems simply to irritate him. (Of course, then Ryan grew up and married a math teacher. :-)
