After his grandparents told him no wrestling around in the
pews, Liam scratched this out on his lap at church. His grandfather has a game wherein
he informs the kids "There will be none of this ..." and demonstrates that there
will be a moratorium on headlocks, body-slamming, tickling, etc. by
demonstrating it on the nearest grandkid. Probably sulking after being scolded,
Liam drew this, rolled it up like a scroll, and delivered it to his grandpa,
who showed it to Liam's grandmother and the two of them laughed.
I'm struggling to keep some things balanced, put out fires,
and sometimes I wonder if what I signed up for is worth the trouble of
everything I have to go through for it. Everyone has those days, I know. I just
wish mine existed without things to make them more difficult than necessary.
I'll take what I can get, I suppose.
Today marks our first official day of second grade. I'm still piecing together a homeschool resource page; I know some of you have emailed with a bunch of questions on everything from curriculum to how I schedule my time. I'm not ignoring them; I just I'm a bit slow in answering emails at the moment due to my workload. Thanks for your patience. I'll be here with more regularity, in a very non-fiber kind of way, as soon as we settle in to our new schedule and I can get Liam to stop feeding pencils to his new pencil sharpener.
