No Mom Left Behind!
I'm the first one to admit that I don't know everything. Well, maybe not the first, but surely a close second. Gabriel knows a lot of things that I don't know. I know a lot more about math, grammar, and cooking. Gabriel knows more trivia about our past presidents that I could possible want to know! Anyway, this particular thing that he knows more about is the moon. On our way somewhere, he was telling me all about the waxing gibbous. I asked him what it was called when the moon was less than half. He informed me that we weren't learning about that, right now and he would tell me all about it when the moon was half full. I stared at Gary and said, "What!??? He's going to deny me the knowledge that I want because of his schedule?!!!!" Gary replied, "No mom left behind!" Ah, but Gabriel will not be swayed. He will tell me all about it in his own time, which means according to schedule. In the meantime, I just have to side step him and take my question to the internet or our science encyclopedia. And, if you're curious, it's a crescent. Or, you could wait, and I'll let you know when we get to that part of our lessons in a couple weeks.
