True thoughts

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

-Samuel L. Clemens

The Winners of the self-discipline contest.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by PicasaLevi was telling us about how they disciplined kids at an orphanage. I said, " yes, this is a good way to increase self discipline." My ultracompetative kids wanted to see who was most self disciplined. So they all lined up to see who could stand there the longest.
The results are Zachary 30 seconds, Isaac 4min, Ethan and Levi 20min. I stopped the "contest" at 20min for some math self discipline!!
