Math matters!!!

We were in the van on the way home from church last Sunday and Gus asked us, "Why does it matter if I learn math?"  What??!?  Kip stopped the car (not really), but we did look at each other amazed that our son who is in Kindergarten is asking the question we have both heard from so many high school students over the years.  We immediately chimed in with our arsenal of answers as to why math is so important.  If the conversation were recorded, I'm sure you would all be laughing.  At some point, Gus won't ask us anymore because he won't want to deal with long-winded answers from a couple of math geeks!
