Three days of school in so far. It's going really well. I was pregnant for pretty much the whole school year last year, and I forgot how much more patience and energy I have when I'm not pregnant. I was pretty nervous about teaching more than one this year, but I actually like it better. Isaac always had a hard time concentrating when his brothers where off playing, so he tends to relax when they are at the table with him.

Another good choice was not to buy a curriculum. We were given some really good materials last year, so I'm taking what I like out of those as well as finding things to supplement them. So all in all, I think we're all enjoying school so far.

I did start Sam in kindergarten this year along with Elijah. He is holding his own. I do cut him some slack but I think he will do okay.

This morning when Elijah answered a question really well I felt like saying "good job! 5 points for Gryffindor"

I would love to award you 20 points just for making me laugh. :)

I'm glad things are going well for you too. I kept checking back to see how it was all going. We are really enjoying our year too.

Is it not amazing to think of the amount of energy pregnancy takes? Except when you remember that you are building a kid cell by cell! It's amazing we have energy for anything else!

I think it is wonderful how your boys work together! They look seriously engaged in the picture.

How about 5 points for each house, with a bonus for Gryffendor?
