The days are long but the years are short.
I heard this somewhere along my homeschooling way...so true!
DD15: Norman Castle for Military History
DD13: A page from her "Soldier's Life" compilation
DS10: School done? Check. Chores done? Check. Computer play time? Check. Exercise? Check. This boy needs a hobby. Or three.
DS8: Whizzed through Lesson 3 of Math-U-See Gamma! Struggled with "answering in complete sentences" in WWE. Almost done reading Little House in the Big Woods.
DS5: On Monday we rushed to the store on the way to our afternoon D&D group. As I hurried the children through the parking lot, in the wind and drizzle:
DS5: What day is it?
There was no reason for it to be "awesome" -- we were going to a store (not for him), in the cold (and we don't have seasonal-appropriate clothing yet), before going to yet another place (not for him)...and yet! It was Monday. It was awesome. It's good to be five. And it's good to be a five year old's mom, too!
DD10mo: Worst -- Waking in the night a lot. Best -- Looking at books and making little noises as she "reads" to herself.
