    Nathan is 13 and we've never used a workbook approach to learning. Recently, I got a couple of workbooks to make life a little easier for all of us: easier for him to know what is expected, easier for me to just give him the work assignment, etc.

    So he had a list of words that were to be written in alphabetical order. There were about 30 words... but here is an example of what he did. I couldn't stop laughing... I actually had tears streaming down my face from laughing so hard.

    incidental
    ultra-articulate
    abbreviation
    quotation marks
    syllable
    (and the list went on....)

    The instructions said to write the words in alphabetical order... so these were his answers:

    a) acdeiilnn
    b) alrtu-aaceilrttu
    c) aabbeiinrotv
    d) ainoqttu akmrs
    e) abelllsy
    (and the list went on...)

    He is soooo literal. lol

    I showed him what he did, told him why it wasn't what they were asking for - and he thought it was pretty funny, too. I love that he has a sense of humor about himself and his little quirks. ;)

    He sounds like a real character. I'm glad you can both appreciate how funny that was.
