Lessons from Lexi

Wait, wait, wait... I have to share a couple things my six year old Lexi said this week....

The Air We Breathe?

In a converation at dinner Lexi was telling us about what she learned in science. They have been learning about extinction. I asked her what animal was in danger of or was extinct that interested her. She was trying really hard to remember and said, "Oh now I remember! Oxygen!" We were all really trying to figure out what she was talking about. "Um, sweetie, are you sure?" "Yes mom, oxygen are getting extinct. You know, those things that work on farms pulling stuff?"

Me: "Oh, you mean oxen?"

Lexi: "Yes, that's what I was saying, oxygen!"

Three What?

Lexi: "Mom, have you ever seen a three eyed dog?"

Me: "A what?"

Lexi: "A three eyed dog."

Me: "Um, no, can't say I have hon."

Lexi: "Oh, well, they are really special. They help blind people get around cause they can't see. The dog sees for them.They are called three eyed dogs."

Me: "Oh, yes, I think I know what you are talking about now." Seeing Eye Dogs...

Lexu has been soaking up first grade, she really loves learning and always has an interesting twist to whatever she shares! Thought you'd like to hear a little, Lexi style!

Don't you love that age! My Kristofer is in 1st too. We were working on homework (math) and to help him learn his addition I sing it to him...9+9 is 18 (which he knows)so I say to him... 6+6 is ? He looks at me and says, "hey do I look like Einstein or somethin" I lost! Had no idea he even knew the name Einstein!
