Quote of the Day

"We saw a boy outside who had just gone to school. Only he went to school instead of being homey-schooled. But then you just wouldn't get to be with your mom all day. It takes your breath away--if you go to school, on the first day it kind of takes your breath away, because you don't get to be with your mom for the whole morning!"
-Meg (in her typical quaint and dramatic fashion)

My daughter uttered these words after a pretty rough morning here, wherein she earlier wished (for the first time since we started this year) that she wasn't homeschooled. I was pretty discouraged. I took this little moment of her pity for the kid who had to be away from his mommy all morning as pure grace. Thank you, Lord, and thank you, Meg, for lifting my spirits with a kind word.
