They are buzzing along, mostly with review material. They've started to sprawl their books and papers all over the dinner room table,
and there has been only one "stop bothering me" outburst. I had to separate them. The 8 year old likes to talk while she works and the 12 year old likes to daydream while she is supposed to be working.
All in all, the girls seem happy to be working their little brains, and I am happy to be implementing my schedule and plans. Obama comes on to give the children a message about the importance of education shortly, so we'll take a break to watch that!
Hope everyone's year is off to a great start!
