One Pleasure of Homeschooling

This is Faith,
my darling girl who shows up every morning (unless she's sick).
Today Hunter called in sick; Dillon is at a band concert with his public school band class;
Carson called to tell me he'd rather stay home
to do his work since the other boys won't be here.
Faith?...well, she's faithful!
And her mother is the darling Aminta
who brought us maple bars and a mocha from our favorite coffee shop.
It doesn't get much better than this. I've been able to work with Faith all by herself as she catches up to be ready for 6th grade next year.
It has been a memorable morning, and I highly recommend this style of teaching!
And now? I'm off to make huge bubbles with Faith using our bubble maker because she's finished with her work and not ready to go home yet.

I love maple bars! What a sweetheart.

Sounds like a very special morning to me! But then who doesn't love to spend one on one time with Faith, or with youCatherine for that matter?!
