What? Mortal Kombat? Sure, why not? It's a lot of fun.

Not you Gilligan. :slap: :silly:

My oldest daughter, Lacy was drawing on her white-board desk tonight. I asked her what she was doing, she said "fractions." She's in first grade.

Sure enough, she had sounded it out, and wrote "fracchins" accross the top of the board. She then drew a rectangle, divided it in three equal parts, and colored one in. Below it, she wrote "1/3." Then she drew a circle, divided it in four equal parts, and colored one in. Below it, she wrote "1/4."

I'm so proud of her. She loves school, and has gotten perfect report cards from day one. She has never missed a word on a spelling test, and recently got 25/25 on a one-minute timed addition/subtraction test.

She is incredibly motivated to learn on her own, and always wants to be doing, and learning, something new.

I hope she never loses her desire to learn. Knowledge really is power.

She's given the choice every night to watch a video as she falls asleep, or to read. To date, she has chosen reading EVERY time. She's recently gotten into reading her children's Bible, and loves to talk about the stories in there with me when I get to see her.

I thank the Lord everyday that such perfect children can come from such imperfect people. God bless both of my "angels on earth."

not a bad idea. we could use another guard or tackle.

If Mike Williams can lose 100 pounds to play Tackle, then why can't JaMarcus do the same ?

Somebody go to the Stadium and start a thread titled "JaMarcus Russell is rumored to be imminently released : Should We ?"

:rotflmao: " Now go ahead. I'll be behind you so if we have to run,I can lead the way."

That's really a beautiful story. Think I'll go to bed now since it's always good to end the night on a good note :)

Oh, and they are "angels" not "angles." As you can see, they succeed in spite of me, not because of. :ols:

I'd bluff and say I was trying to teach her some geometry too, but I think y'all know better than that. :ols:

I don't care for the Will.I.Am remix of My Generation. Come to think of it, I hate most Who Covers. People! The music is already damn near perfect. LEAVE IT HOW IT IS!

Okay, THAT was pretty bad ass. They took a page right out of The Who's playbook and used the tambourines.

+1 Cool points for Pearl Jam.

Phillip Daniels taking questions over in The Stadum. I wonder how long it will be before we see a PFT or JLC story quoting sources and such? ;)
