In School Today:

Sometimes, you know you are doing something right!

The Zoo Keeper, telling whether verbs are past, present, or future:

"A woodpecker drilled these holes...Past."

"Wolves travel in packs...Present."

"Last year we studied flowers...Past."

"Jesus loves me....Past, Present, and Future!"

Other times, even when it sounds wrong, you know it's right:

The Horse Whisperer: "I wish I didn't have to do Algebra today. *sigh*"

Me: Okay, don't do it.

The Horse Whisperer: "REALLY?!" accompanied by a beaming face and near tears of joy

Of course, it will have to be caught up tomorrow, but sometimes a kid just needs an unexpected break.

Hey, you are so right! It's those moments that make homeschooling worth it!

I love the past, present and future sentence! A little bit of poetry!

I also like your approach to schooling. She would have been very pleasantly surprised!
