Too cool for school

Moomin has been in “science and art” camp for weeks: Camp Galileo. They’re really organized and send home daily newsletters (mostly canned…) and at the end of the week, photos of all the kids and a certificate. I think the “science” they do is overhyped, so there is a lot of bridge-building from popsicle sticks, fun but with these things I always wish they would dig deeper and make things more “real”.

Meanwhile there is a lot of loafing and comic books and reading going on over here, and we continue to make stuff out of the Howtoons book.

But we haven’t made a movie, or started a band, or learned programming, or done experiments with electricity, and and and…

Though on the “experiments with electricity” front, I am giving Moomin a quarter every time he turns off a light in a room no one’s using.

Reading: Island of the Aunts by Eva Ibbottsen, which I pitched to him as “kids doing magical marine rescue.”

We looked at the Daily Ocean blog, whose author goes for a 20-minute walk every day to pick up trash on the beach. She photographs it and writes beautiful, thoughtful posts. After 40 days of picking up trash, she had collected over 200 pounds of trash. Keep in mind that’s only 20 minutes a day!

And we watched The Bots, two teenagers from LA with a punk rock band:

    Simply act naturally and have a great time theres nothing cooler than that. Everybody has one of a kind objectives and goals in life and on the off chance that you are continually attempting to fit in with others or attempt to please others as opposed to yourself you'll end up carrying on with an existence of always attempting to be something you're most certainly not. Dissertation|House|UK .Say your fantasy was identified with guitar and guitar for this situation was'nt cool. In the event that you needed to be cool you would need to conceal that you play guitar and do things that were not guitar that you didn't appreciate and would rather play guitar any day. Consequently you were cool and fit in.

    Dissertation King wish this kid good luck in his future. School these days gives you the lust to achieve materialistic goals only. I don’t know if this is the kid that earns this much money by picking up the trash or someone else but I prefer that rather than sending my kid to school.
