A Little Child Will Lead Them

Josiah is fairly determined to finish his second grade work by the end of April, so tonight after the boys were in bed, I used my "me time" to plan out a tentative schedule for his school work so that we can meet his goal. That ate up my blogging time, but I didn't mind because it was time well spent. Josiah will be pleased tomorrow to see my plans and to have a visual reminder of what we need to accomplish during the next eleven or so weeks, and the thought of the gorgeous month of May with no official school to be done makes me a little giddy.

So, with only a few minutes until I turn into a pumpkin at midnight, I'll just post this short video and call it a night. I actually didn't intend for the video to be quite this short, but the camera battery was too low to take any more video so the movie production came to a screeching halt. Regardless, it still shows Tobin's new form of dance. He goes to our toy electric keyboard, pushes the button to make a song play, raises both hands in the air, starts to march, keeps the left hand raised, and then lifts and lowers his right hand. Why he came up with this particular dance, I have no idea. But it amuses me--and does my heart good--to see how David and Josiah imitate him. So many times, the younger boys follow the older ones; but it's refreshing to see the pattern occasionally reversed. It makes me think of Isaiah 11:6. You think we'll be dancing like this in heaven? :)

I still don't know how you and other homeschool moms ever fit schooling into your schedule. Especially with other little children, babies, and toddlers around. I just think you all are AMAZING! I hope God will give me that amazing grace and ability when my turn comes to homeschool in earnest.

I've tried from 2 computers at two different times and have not been able to get that video to play... just thought I would let you know.

Hmm, that's strange. I just tried it here at home with my laptop and the main computer, and it worked fine on both of those. Any suggestions about what I should do? Should I try to reload it?

The girls love these videos, feeling like they really know your boys, I suppose. I hope we're able to make a trip up your way one summer - perhaps in the RV. Want some company?

YES! We want company. :)
