It's been a whirlwind week and yet slow as can be. We have visited libraries and attempted to see a lunar eclipse. The boys have worked hard and finished their reader. I'm confident that they could easily test at a second grade level at this time. DD is working slowly and only does her lessons when she wants to, but is absorbing more than she realizes by playing while the boys and I work. She pops up with recognized words at the oddest moments. All in all, the year ended quietly and well.
There were a couple of conversations though that really should be recorded:
DS#1 to DH: "Daddy, how long are you dead?"
DS#1: (small pause) "That's a long time!"
While watching New Year's Fireworks
DD: "Mommy, are those fairies?"
Me: "Well, they might just be!"
DD: "If I could go over there, the fairies could teach me to fly without wings."
(Isn't that a lovely dream!)
