Homeschooling the kids after a break has been a blessing. Their little minds are refreshed and willing to comply. Julia even finished her math in record time. What I have noticed is the difference in learning in boys versus girls. My girls are methodical and organized and neat. I have always felt that meant they would have a successful day. Blaise has opened my eyes to a new way of learning. Boys do not like sitting still. They generally don't care to use an eraser unless it can be projected at their sister, and don't get me started on what occurs when left alone with glue, tape, and or scissors! This new hands on approach to learning has forced me out of my comfort zone! It has taught me to change my expectations not change who he is. Everyone who truly knows me knows what a neat freak I am. I have had a love affair with Dyson for years now. I just have to let it go and if Blaise is learning how to add cheerios by dumping the whole box out on the floor and counting up...well it is what it is. When the little stinker goes to Harvard some day I hope he takes really good care of me!
