Every time either of the kids gets an answer wrong that a child their age should know, I try to give them the benefit of the doubt.
The past year of schooling has been unlike any school year ever, and, honestly, I’m not even sure what a 10-year-old and 7-year-old should and shouldn’t have a firm grasp on anymore.

Other Stuff I Did When I Wasn’t Writing Notes
- Over at my day job, I wrote about how I can’t fall asleep without watching Bob Ross.
- I wrote about a kid who was fired from his job at a paint store for being too passionate about his job.
- The holidays are coming. Money is tight. I spoke to a banking and investment expert about saving for holiday gifts when you don’t make much money.
- On the “We Run This” podcast, we spoke to Makenna Myler. She’s won a bet with her husband by running a 5:25 mile while 9 months pregnant. She rocks.
