The Dude Combines Math & Mozart

A tactic to encourage mathematical brilliance or just a device to drown out fraternal distractions?

Hmmm ... or a device to encourage fraternal distractions??

My favorite part is the gun sitting on the book! What more could a boy want/need?

Happy WW!

LOL... alright... thats funny... and so true... I liked the gun too... and.. did I see a cloth diaper?? its to the left... He dusts too?

But my favorite is the older brother dudes face expression looking at little brother dude... That’s awesome!

Such wonderful taste for such a young man! Or should I say young men...

SKELLER said...

Silly Lisa - that's not a cloth diaper with which to dust ... it's my littlest Dude's "map." It goes with the pirate bandana underneath it. Funny thing is, I was going to crop these photos pretty closely so that all you'd see would be the math & the cd, but then I thought the messy, cluttered, "unschool-like" atmosphere of the room told the more honest (and humorous!) story.

LisaWA said...

lol! Woops! My bad... Im so sorry... I hope littlest dude is not insulted?? *Ü*

I loved the pictures... remember you are my muse in photography!!

You who inspire!!

Mama Peep said...

Great photos!

That is a scene that happens too often here. She will start listening to the Ipod because *insert either brother* is distracting her. Eventually, they are all sharing the tunes one way or another.

Happy WW

I love the expression on your older son's face too!

Well...they do say that classical music works on the mathematical part of the brain...But distractions are always appreciated. Katie hasn't been getting her school work done lately until almost 5 in the afternoon. Distraction is the name of her game!

dadgumit. You turn pictures of math books into art. I'm impressed.

i too heard that classical msuic is good for the brain too ESPECIALLY mozart. i think there's a university that plays mozart for muzac.

here's a link

Aunt Tea -
thanks for sharing that interesting article. and if I have to listen to muzac, then I'd prefer it be Mozart!!
