Yahoo provides the SAT Math Problem of the Day to challenge your brain.

Deane pointed this out on Gadgetopia. I’ve gotten a little rusty on my algebraic expressions, and I plan on hitting this one daily. On the first one I tried, I got the correct answer, but got sucked into the trick part of the question. Dang!

One number is 4 times another. The sum of the two numbers is -15. What is the value of the smaller number?
A. 5
B. -3
C. -5
D. -12
E. -15

I won’t give the answer; I’ll let you figure it out.

One of Emily’s graduation photos, taken by Chari Clark in our back yard. Chari does a nice job, probably better than a lot of professionals, but it’s hard to get a bad photo of Emily.

I cannot believe she’s a senior this year. Maybe that’s where all my gray hair came from.

Caleb 7-2k

Here’s a photo of Caleb that was taken back in July, 2000. He was just a toddler then, climbing all over everything. In this photo he’s about 5 feet off the ground on the monkey bars in the back yard. No fear at all. I wonder what happened to that, cuz now he gets nervous going over a bridge on a bike. Too near the edge for him!
