Start The Week Off Right...

...with a word problem!
Pull out some scratch paper and a #2 pencil.

PROBLEM- A picture obsessed girl has 23 bazillion photographs. She is able to choose 167 shots of her friends and family that live far away. She has one large frame that has 41 slots for pictures. How many more large frames will the girl need to display all the shots of her favorite people?

While I was figuring it all out, Minna sat with her dad on the hammock in the sun. Yes, hammock and sunny weather today! I was too excited and busy inside playing with my pictures. (That's what Minna calls it:)

Now, the first thing I see in the morning on my way down to begin each day,

and the last thing I see when on my way up to bed at night,
are the faces and places back home that we miss so much.

What a lovely sight. And so worth all that math.

Happy Monday to all near and far!


  1. I need to do that, for my family lives far away too. Thanks for the idea!

  2. I am really loving it! You must do it! :)

  3. Oh my gosh. I just got caught up on the blog. Been doin too much homework. I totally cried! I see my and my baby girlies! And I see Caleb and Emma... oh how I miss you guys.
