Well this first day of school had an exciting finale... It had been a little rainy this afternoon. Later, James called and told me to pull the van into the garage. As I was running through the rain it started hailing! So I zoomed the car in and soon enough- like as I came through the house and back out the front door-- there were these golf-ball sized hail raining down! Leaves were being beaten off all the trees and the hail was shooting off the roof. The thunder crashed and the kids shrieked and the power went out (ok, for about 3 minutes). It was very exciting.
Well, we did math, reading, science and more character training on 'whining'. Not bad for getting back in the groove.
