am i supposed to update this needy little beast?

blogging.  gah.

school has started around here.  i have yet to surface.

not to mention the poor little kids.  their binders are bigger than they are.  i had to tease jehu mercilessly to get this smile.  fortunately he cracked or you would have thought my children were all sullen.

this year i decided to drill holes in everything and avoid the explosive school box ritual.  so far we really like it.  if they want to they can take their pages out to work on.  the binders lay flat and leave a large writing pad on one end.  works dandy.

jael loves it.  she wishes i could hang out with her all day and show her how to write her name and count apples and absolutely refuses to go play.  which means she sits there with incessant demands and complains about the inferior level of education she’s receiving.  well tough cookie princess.  wait until you turn five, i’m not a machine.

gideon and jehu, on the other hand, have their work cut out for them.  between homeschooling,  classical conversations, a few ambitious reading lists, choir practice, chores, catechism, soccer three times a week, and awanas – we’re pretty much booked.  i’m also going to try and start running with the boys now that it is too dark to go in the morning by myself.  my goal is to never hear them say they are bored, ever again.  we’ll see who dies first.  it’s not over ’til it’s over!

    jael’s motto is incredibly appropriate.
