High Speed Data Transfer

Luca, our six year old, tends to travel at one speed only - faster than thought.

3G has nothing on the high speed functioning capabilities of our children. A recent example:

My eight-year-old and I like to see what the Tuttle's in Peru are up to at Fisher Academy International - Teaching Home. While checking out another of their thrilling nature studies, I commented to him, "You know the name of their blog is an acronym, right?"

"Yeah, I know. It's FAITH," was his reply.

Ugh, it only took me a year to figure that one out and he knew it all along. Thinking I'd give him something to ruminate on, I asked, "Well, if you were to name our home school with an acronym, what would it be?"

Without skipping a beat he smiled and answered, "Russian American Growing Ground - Education Division."

If you're running on dial-up like their mama, the acronym formed is RAGGED.

My kids--everyone's kids--never cease to amaze me!
