This year, we are also going to try some proto-schooling for Shane. I'm not super optimistic about this, as he is currently too busy building artificial intelligence from sacks of robot parts acquired from the thrift store and Grandpa's basement to have much interest in such common pursuits as the alphabet and the integers. I'm not kidding, he can't even spell R2D2, but if you want a robot that eats the imaginary garbage off the floor, he's your man. So yeah, I'll be watching with interest. From afar.
As for Weston, I asked him what he wanted to learn about this year, and here is his list, in order:
Atoms and Cells
How Cars Work
Why It's Easier to Sleep on a Soft Bed than a Hard One
How Boys and Girls are Different
How Bodies Work
Why Daddy Always Wears Underwear
I'm reasonably convinced, but not entirely certain, that the last one was a joke. Either way, have fun, honey!
