Life in the schoolhouse

There is a lot going on at the two kid schoolhouse, though you would have no way to know that.

The seminarian graduates later this month.  After several weeks of wondering "uh, what are we going to do now?" we were given the gift of another year without moving:  he will be taking an internship at a local church.  Feels good not to be packing and saying goodbye.  Also felt good to renew our membership to our favorite garden. I think I promised our two guest passes to about 14 people.  Uh oh.  Maybe we will have to move after all.

We went to Washington, DC, finally.  I will write a real blog with actual photos about that experience soon.  Let me just say that a brief trip to an interesting place with lots to do does not have to be frantic or disappointing. 

We had our homeschool evaluations and completed our 180 days of education for the state.  Nothing will really change in our lives, but it will be nice not to have to keep records for a while.

Our calendar is slowly emptying.  That is always a great feeling.

Reading the Richmond Lattimore translation of The Odyssey aloud is pure pleasure.  I hardly ever feel like I'm going to fall asleep reading it. 

Leafcutter ants are very cool.  They made a great science project. That is a hint.  More pictures!

I think now that I can breathe, I might have something to say here again.

Congratulations to all of you! (I am pretty sure it took your whole family to get your husband through seminary.) Exciting stuff and I can imagine the uncertainty was stressful.
