As if.

Bones is doing conversions in Math. I'm being the cheerleader.

God help us.

Where do they get crap like this?

Charles ate 8.5 pounds of chicken in an hour. How many oz of chicken did he eat in a minute?

At this point, we agree that Charles can choke on his chicken.

And we really don't give a crap how many miles per hour Michael Phelps swims.


Oh... and Bones big feet... just an inkling. 10.5 shoe on a 5'3" body.

They call those his 'bullet shoes'.

Last week he was dressed for a performance, so he had on those pants and those shoes, but with his white shirt and tie. His history teacher said, "Bones, why are you wearing those shoes?"

Completely not understanding what he meant, Bones said "Because I have a performance today..." and the History teacher asked if the shoes actually fit.

So Bones took them off and showed him and he said his History teacher didn't know what to say except, "Wow, you have big feet..."

Last week, a kid in his class took off Bones' tennis shoe and put it up on the white board and traced around it. Everyone laughed.

Hence his nickname... "Mr. Clown".

The teachers get together at Panera Bakery, get all ADHD on sugar and caffeine and make the crap up. Or at least that is what I witnessed last week. You should have heard the questions that didn't make the cut.

They need to step away from the sugar...

I was told by a geneticists that the feet grow first, then the rest of the body catches up. Oh, and kids grow more during the summer because they get more sleep and are less stressed.
If that's the case then get ready for some serious grocery shopping this summer.

AC- My experience has been that they're right. My boys' feet always get huge first, although never this huge, and then they grow one summer. I've already prepared Ringo that when he comes home from college (he is going one summer term), that Bones will be taller.

Isn't Bones already taller than Ringo? It sure looked it in the picture of the three boys from 04/14.

I know, it did, but Ringo wasn't wearing shoes and Bones was wearing those high tops that give you height. Plus the ground was uneven. They are pretty much exactly the same... but not for long. I suspect only for another month.

Is he perhaps thinking of the life aquatic? Those are some serious propulsion units. :)

What Curtis said!

I bet he swims like an otter! :)

And they're very narrow. I tell him he has flipper feet.

...what are his teeth like? My cousin Mark is 6'5" and from the age of 12 had a mouth full of teeth that looked crazy - of course now they are perfectly in proportion with his height and size. Nature is an amazing thing. :-)

When I was in Art class in the 8th grade,the teacher taught us about body proportion. I don't remember all, but I recall that the foot is the same length as the inner side of the arm where the elbow bends to the wrist. See how that works.

It worked! No wonder my boys look like monkeys with long arms, big feet and short bodies!
