A while

It's been a while. I have missed you. We are busy with school right now. Contemplating field trips. Eliana is doing gymnastics. Tasha is doing tap and jazz. Talon gets to go to story hour at the library. Add in the fun of jury duty for me a couple of days a week. Oh, wait, I almost forgot art classes for the girls. It's going to be a wild, yet strangely relaxing semester. I really, really love the start of school. I love buying new school supplies. Ask my mom. I have always loved school. In fact, I am kind of surprised I am not still in school. Ok. Kidding on that one. I am mulling over and toying with the idea of taking some sewing classes again. At least I have fun reading through the descriptions every semester.

Instilling a love of learning in children is one of the most valuable things you can do for a child, I think. I have always loved to learn. Not sure how my parents did that, but thank you Mom and Dad. Mom, how did you guys do that, anyway?

Oh, here's something funny. I have to stop Tasha from reading books to do things like go to bed, eat, finish her schoolwork. Ha ha ha ha ha ha...I have created a little me. She is sooo like me in that. I just need to surround her with good books, and away she'll go. :)

It seems that there was something else I was going to say. Hmmmm..... yeah. nothing. I guess I can always come back later and fill you in, when I remember.

as for now, woke up with this song running through my head:
My heart sings a brand new song
The debt is paid, these chains are gone
Emmanuel, God with us...........
Like hinges straining from the weight, my heart no longer can keep from singing

MercyMe/God With Us/All That Is Within Me

I don't know how we instilled a love of learning in both you and your brother. I guess I have always had an intense love of learning new things in my adult life (I didn't like high school at the time). When I discovered that I had a brain, and wanted to use it, it must have rubbed off on you and Eli. Your children have the learning gene because all of us are letting them know that it's a great thing to read, learn, and write.

Of course, it doesn't hurt that the children's parents are geniuses.
