Yesterday, while out for a walk, I stopped by Second Cup to get a coffee.

I passed the cashier my money and waited for my change.

She must have been around 17 years old.

Well, the cash register started to mal-function.

It could not provide the cashier with the amount she needed to give me back.

So, I just though, no worries, she will work it out in her head and give me the right change back.

Oh boy, was I wrong there!

She tried.

I'll give her that.

She just couldn't do it.

I tried very hard not the let the horror show on my face.

But, the two fellows in back of me, felt no such compulsion.

I did not like that.

It's one thing to think it; it's another to say it aloud.

I quickly stepped in to help her out, and was on my way.

But, on the walk home, I could not stop thinking about it.

What are they teaching our kids in school?

When I went to school, our teachers did not allow us to use a calculator till I was in grade 11.

It was like a badge of honor.

And, my first job in a video store, the owner did not want us to use
the cash register because he did not want us to use up the white paper
rolls.

We had to do everything manually.

Because of that experience, I can do math in my head like nobody's business.

What happened at the coffee shop must have been weighing on my mind,
because at supper, out of nowhere, I just blurted out to the kids that
they will learn to add & subtract in their head if it's the last
thing they do!

I could say they looking at me adoringly and quickly agreed.

But, heh, these are my kids.

They just looked at me strangely!

Which leads me to today's posting.

Today, we are going to practice our addition with flashcards.

Yes siree!

Let's get to it.
