Today was our first day of homeschooling! We only…

Today was our first day of homeschooling! We only did a little bit, just to give the kiddos a taste of how wonderfully different it is from SITTING IN A CROWDED CLASSROOM FOR SIX HOURS A DAY.

Daughter actually asked for more schoolwork after supper, and chose to do a science lesson.

Earlier, while supper was cooking, I overheard this exchange:

(three children lying on sofa covered with blanket, watching Nativity DVD):

girl child, looking at shot of Baby Jesus in the manger: “Does God really have a nose?”

older boy child, raising one eyebrow like Mr. Spock: “look there. Of course He does. You can’t be a real baby without a nose!”

younger boy child, having the last word: “I wonder if Mary kissed Baby Jesus’ nose the way mom kisses our noses.”

BTW the DVD in question is part of the New Testament on DVD that I got at the DOLLAR STORE, of all places. It’s actually quite good.
