Pin It Now! I don't homeschool my kids, but maybe I should. Because I teach them a lot of things. And they do a great job of taking it out and applying it in real life situations.

For example, in the car yesterday Elijah and I had a conversation about Asian hair. I don't remember how the subject came up, but I told him that Asians have dark hair. Then we talked specifically about some friends, "You know so and so who is chinese? What color is his hair? You know so and so who is Korean, what color is her hair?" Then I told him that our friend Daniel was coming over that night and he is Korean and he has dark hair. Then Elijah asked me if Grandpa was Chinese. I had to explain that not everyone who has dark hair is Asian. Lydia and Jordis were in the car too, but did not participate in the conversation. I later learned that Lydia was soaking it all in.

That night Daniel (Korean) and his wife Jessica (white, but with brown hair) were over for dinner. Jessica threw Lydia up in the air and caught her. Lydia laughed and then said to Jessica, "You're like Chinese!"

Pin It Now!

Love it! They are ALWAYS soaking stuff in. Quite frightening in our house.
