Learning Curve

I've heard you learn something every day. Sometimes what you learn is usable; other times it's fluffy trivia. Some is just life experience. Well, here's what I learned yesterday:

  • Once a student discovers a live, loose mouse in the classroom and girls scramble on top of their desks while boys crowd into a corner hoping to find and stomp the rodent, not much learning will occur during the remainder of the class period. (perhaps there's an equation for this. Like, Productivity = Focus divided by screams minus general excitement)
  • My kids still won't eat (try) sauerkraut. Not even the boy. Not even when I told him it would give him a leg up on next year's German class.
  • It's possible to fall asleep sitting upright, watching a favorite laugh-out-loud show, with the fam hooting and giggling all around.
Happy Tuesday -- it's Tacoday at our house, I'm thinkin'.

we have to deal on Learning Curves in our life. Life doesn't always take straight roads.
