Amusing followup

After I suggested she get out her times tables flash cards last night after dinner, Casper confessed that she didn't actually want to work on her basic math facts, but the self-guided conference required them to choose an area that needed effort, and she couldn't think of anything better. I pointed out that the fact that she didn't want to work on her basic math facts did not negate the valid point she herself had made, that her lack of mastery was holding her back.

I giggled on the inside. She half-heartedly flipped through the flash cards for a bit.
