|Rich left for work at the same time the older kids left for school. Grace started High School today, so we have one Freshman, one Sophomore, and one Junior this year. They have grown up fast and beautifully.
“Send them out with something to go for and something to come back for. So you tie home to the school and school to the home. Both gain new values in the eyes and minds of the children.”
“A child who cannot have freedom for growth cannot grow.”
I said “see you later!” to our three High School children and then went down to the boys’ room to wake up David and Caleb. I found that David had put his clothes at the end of his bed with a written “scedeale” for himself. One hopes that he learns how to spell “schedule” in fifth grade. Caleb woke up ready for action, but I had to wake up Davy several times before he got up out of his nice comfortable bed. They proceeded throughout the morning according to Davy’s list.
Origami is still all the rage in David’s life. He folds paper every day and tries to teach Caleb, too. But when he tried to teach him the Ninga star, he got frustrated that Caleb had problems focusing. “Yeah, I can’t focus!” Caleb agreed. One hopes that Caleb learns to focus in third grade.
They are really handsome.
