I went to the library the other day with just the two big kids. I had a few minutes to pick out a book for myself, even though I've got a pile of books I'm already trying to read. But I wanted something that would keep me up at night, you know what I mean?

Ahh, English. You know, I read the other day that English is pretty remarkable in the language world for its longevity. And it is pretty cool that we can read Shakespeare that was written 400 years ago and still understand it (especially with a little practice). With that in mind, it's no wonder that the study of English can be daunting.

So far we love everything we are using. It's such a relief!
We've got 2 and a half students this year. Esmond is sort of a student, and sort of still a toddler. Noemi is still very much a toddler. So that'll be fun, of course. Esmond pretty much already knows everything he thinks he needs to know anyway. (Yes, he's going to be a fun student.) His work will be just learning to love being educated this year, which involves stories, books, and bribes. (If you say this memory work, you'll get a star!)
