This week has been an interesting week. All 3 boys have been grounded from the TV and video games.
Joshua has been grounded from both television and video games lately because he has still has yet to learn his multiplication tables. Now, understand that this is the same boy who can read a bunch of cheat codes for a video game and remember them all. You see, the reason he doesn't know his multiplication tables is not because they are too hard but because he hasn't actually sat down to learn them.
Anyway, tonight he was practicing them and every five minutes or so he would come and say, "test me." I'd ask a couple of questions and he would miss one. With it being Friday night (the night the boys get to stay up and watch TV) he, as well as the other 2 boys, were very anxious to get ungrounded. We told the boys that if Joshua learned his multiplication tables then they would all be free to watch TV. Feromsa went right to work on this very important task.
After a little while of Feromsa quizzing Joshua they asked me to test him again. Their exact words were, "Ask him any question." So I asked, "What is the meaning of life?"
Joshua, without any hesitation answered, "To praise God and bring Him glory."
Needless to say, the boys are now watching TV.
