I have found myself scratching my head after one more schedule failure. It seems it all looks so good on paper and yet seems just beyond my reach. Our school days are filled with many memories, alot of delight directed learning and no so many textbooks. We seem to live and school in everyroom of our home. Its a style of schooling I take great joy in! With a new scehdule up on our cupboard I am reminded to focus on the little things in my school days. The little things that seem to be on the fly. Those moments where you break from workbooks and make a Civil War tent over your clothesline or using a red jump rope attach to a tree limb for a bear trap like Laura Ingles did many years ago. Its those little things that I will want to remember many years from now when all the writing boards are empty and the workboxes left unfilled. Its those memories that I want to fill my kids' hearts with. Because one day those little things will be the big things to them as they look back on their school days.
