There was the same kind of quiet the other day…when the oldest was supposed to be doing her homework. Usually that means they’ve snuck off somewhere and they are playing instead of doing what they are supposed to do.
Instead? They were doing exactly what they were supposed to be doing. The oldest was writing her spelling words (just figured out she’s like her mommy and this is the best way she learns the words. She’s done well with spelling tests, but this makes it a whole lot less painful for all parties involved).
The youngest went and got herself some paper and was practicing writing her name (she’s been spelling her name for a while), but the lower case “e” has been tricky for her.
But she’s got her own drive, and she has practiced and practiced and she’s got it down! Now, we just have to work on starting on the far left of the page so her whole name fits.
This time, I was quite pleased with the quiet. If only the quiet was always this productive.
