A new endeavor

Inspired by my friend (and with aplogies for stealing her idea, sort of), I'm launching A Homeschool Moment, in which I will describe one nice moment of a homeschooling day.

I know, it's not very original. And it's not likely to include pictures!  Well, maybe sometimes.

And today might not be the best time to start, since I am leaving my family for a few days and thus won't have any homeschool moments with them till next week.

But let's see how it goes, OK? 

A homeschool moment

Today: sitting on the back deck in the shade, reading Bede's Ecclesiastical History of England aloud to my children, while my daughter painted my toenails.

They are a subtle shade of pink. 

She's wanted to do it for a long time.  Paint the toenails, I mean.

She loves listening to me read Bede, too.  It's more entertaining than you'd think.
