Well, here we are in the middle of August again! Normally we would not start school so soon, but the kids have actually been asking (!) and since baby Snowdrop is due towards the end of September, I thought we should start so that we can take a break when baby is born.
So far so good. All three of my school-aged kids did extra Math pages the first day – they decided to do this without my prompting, and no complaints, except that some of them wanted to do more when it was time to clear the table and prepare dinner. If this good cheer continues, we might finish school this year by Christmas (just kidding)!
