Primus has been excited about doing a unit on pirates ever since last summer. This morning I finally pulled out my resources to start making a lesson plan. I suggested to Primus that maybe we should ask Grandpa to teach one day. I told her that he knew how to tie knots and use a compass.
Her eyes got really wide as she excitedly asked, "Did he go to Pirate High School??"
I gave her a funny look and responded, "No. He's a Boy Scout."
Maybe I should have let her believe that he was a pirate. It wouldn't be so hard for her to believe that Grandpa is a few hundred years old, right? Either way, we are very excited to have a guest teacher next month!
