Are you getting tired of hearing how terribly things are going? Not as tired as I am of writing about it.
So here’s a list of a few funnies heard in between breakdowns and fights:
A Curriculum Review: Why do they call this Handwriting Without Tears. This should definitely be called Handwriting WITH tears. Said by brother one about our well-respected handwriting curriculum while brother two sat on the floor sobbing.
Rebuffing Mom’s Affection: No one thinks kissing is better than indoor soccer!
A Modern Rendition of an Old Hymn: Jesus, I am resting, resting, in the joy of thou poop. Imagine my delight as I heard him singing the song softly to himself while he was working at the table. Until I got close enough to hear the creative lyrics.
Scientific Inquiry: Are we going to do research this year? When I replied that the exploration we were doing in the backyard was research, Oh good! I love research!
All in all, if 10 represents my dream day of homeschool, today was a 2. And that’s on a curve.
