We had sort of put formal school on hold while she was gone, because I didn't want to jump ahead in history without her, and Jared just wasn't into studying. Notice that I said "formal" school. We have a couple of hours of instruction in the mornings, and then let the kids do their own thing in the afternoon, so I can get my work done.
Jared caught a grasshopper and made a little habitat for it in a Tupperware dish.
They have spend a couple of days with Krista, boating and playing in the sprinklers. I try to get them worn out good during the day.
Today, Jared evidently was over tired, so he got sent back to bed at 10:30 am. Mercedes is in her room reading Pippi Longstocking and journaling about her trip.
We'll resume formal school when the public schools resume as well.
