"We did school today!"
It's what I'd love to hear my children excitedly tell their Daddy when he comes home at night.
It's what I say with a sense of relief to my sister-in-law after days of sickness have prevented our educational advancement.
It's what I think to myself every time we get another one on the books. We did school today!
I've never had a job more fulfilling, exhausting, frustrating, or enjoyable as teaching my own children (although I used to teach other people's children--their grown-up children--and I liked that very much as well, so it's possible that teaching is "my thing"). Every day truly feels like an accomplishment, though some more so than others! I take too many pictures, frankly; I think I annoy my friends, though they haven't said so. So I'm going to park my pictures here, proof that we did indeed do school today, something to look at when I feel discouraged, some evidence that my toil has not been in vain, that I am not a totally undisciplined lazy bum, some answer to the imaginary criticisms most often only launched at me by myself.
I hope other people will enjoy looking at what we've done, feel inspired, and share their own ideas as well. But We Did School Today is also a message to myself: you did it, girl!
Can anyone relate? Anyone else got a hearty "we did school today!" to share?
