Overheard from another room

Mimi, TJ and RM are playing in the other room. I hear someone say, "Let's play school" and Mimi chimes in with, "I'll teach math. Math is sooooo fun." Then she breaks into a spontaneous song complete with her own melody and rhyming lyrics:
What have we been learning about today?
Plus-es and take-aways....

Maybe they won't be ruined for life by my less structured homeschool approach after all :-).
Of course, she would be going into second grade, and her friend into third, so while "pluses and take aways" express the full gamut of my daughter's abilities, they are probably a bit remedial for RM. But who wants to tax themselves on their last day of summer vacation anyway!
