“To become a real boy you must prove yourself brave, truthful, and unselfish.” – from Pinnochio

Last weekend Ken set up the portable studio in our living room, and this image was my favorite.

Kevin Swan is a driving force behind ALS research and awareness. This brief video is powerful.

This is yet another time in life when I’m thankful for the flexibility of homeschooling. We can modify our schedule to work for everyone — even me. I’m working with a mentor-trainer a few days a week. Even though I’m only out of the house 2-3 hours at a time, I wouldn’t be able to do this at all without Kathryn’s willingness to step up and help with the younger kids. She’s having a wonderful attitude about it all, and it’s so nice to come home to everybody getting along so nicely.

I plan Scout’s tablework but even on the days I’m gone in the morning, Kathryn can oversee and provide help if needed — then Kathryn and I can work through algebra or watch ocean documentaries, etc, later. I’m happy the kids all see me working towards goals and continuing my own education because it’s what I hope they’ll do, no matter what age.

Happy weekend, friends!
