Off To A Good Start

I think our home school experience is off to a good start. After working on Violet's writing skills yesterday she looks to me with a smile and the look of confidence on her face and sweetly asked, "Mommy, can we do school again tomorrow?" I explained that tomorrow (which is now today) is a Saturday and that you don't do school on Saturdays. And with all the seriousness my kiddo could muster she replied, "But I LIKE school! I WANT to do school on Saturday!".

Now, I'm not foolish enough to think that this type of thinking will last very long. I know that the day will come all too soon when I'll be met with groans of protest when I tell Violet that it's time to start school for the day. But, I think we're off to a pretty good start.

This is so timely. I was just thinking that you'd be the perfect home school teacher (not even knowing that you were doing it).
