Conversations with Emma- Bathroom Math

Out and About- Emma's Photos (39)

I actually got out of bed at a normal time this morning (as opposed to 10 a.m.) so I could help Da clean out the car. He was headed for a paintball event and was picking up two other guys.

Anyway, as I came back in the house, Emma was all excited;

E- "Mama, Mama, come in the the bathroom, quick!"

M- "Ok." (I was expecting her to show me a spider which is the norm)

E- "Go stand over there by the stool (step stool)."

M- "Ok." (our bathroom is pretty small)

E- "While I was going potty I noticed something. These squares here, no matter which way you count them they make nine! See-" She then went on to count a 3 by 3 square of floor tiles a few different ways.

M- "That is really cool! So if you have 3 squares by 3 squares it will make 9? Neat."

Then she went off to watch some Rugrats.

Conversations with Emma- Half of 32

Conversation between Emma and Jared- "Da, how old are you"
Jared- "32"
Emma- "What is half of 32?"
Jared- "16"
Emma- "What is half of 16?"
Jared- "8. Want to know what half of 8 is?"
Emma- "It's 4! Because two 4's make 8."

Apparently whatever we are doing is working :)

I think Emma had a purpose to what she was asking, but it was just about bed time and Da asked Emma if she wanted to color before bed. 20 minutes later...
Bookmarks by Emma and Da. 

And just a fun random photo. 

Have a great day!

Emma's Coloring Book

Emma is the creator of a coloring book.

The coloring books are about 4.25" x 5.5" with 6 horse images to color. The coloring books are printed on speckled card stock (that we picked up today from a printing business that was just going to throw them away!!!) so you can color with markers and not worry that the marker will bleed through (I tested this out to make sure).

Emma's coloring books will be available for purchase from the Ames ArtVend machine after September 24th. We are thinking $1.00 but we would be happy with thoughts on that. 

Of course, if you are viewing Emma's coloring book here on her website, feel free to print it out and color to your hearts content. 

Have a great day!
