Why the Tree of Life?

Bit by Bit

We are mostly unpacked. The big areas left are Evan's office, homeschooling nooks and crannies, and the garage. I veer between a mature patience for the process and sheer panic.

I uncovered Enki Grade One today. Our Austin Enki Homeschoolers group had a meeting a couple weeks ago, and between that and the NOT Back to School swim party today (held annually on the first day of public school ) and finding our books, I'm starting to feel a little inspired. Our Enki group is planning a weekly Game Day that we'll participate in. We're considering the homeschool Cub Scouts den, and we'll be doing Eurythmy with Austin Waldorf Homeschoolers again this year. On top of our Friends Meeting every weekend, I think all those activities are plenty for our outside-commitment plate.

We just finished reading Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator. I'm beginning to appreciate Dahl's humor better, though he's still not my favorite. Both boys love him. I think they would love him even more in a couple years.

Someday, I'll get back to posting pictures on here, too, and not just writing. Eventually. It's all a process.
