I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
I dropped Asa off headed for his penultimate day of 5th grade today. (This is the word I’m going to ask my students to work into their evaluations of me this month.) I wish we had one more year at the school with his little cohort of classmates who have been together since kindergarden.

His buddy’s calling it Howard Academy and teasing him about the small and short graduation ceremony we’ll have at the end of the year. If that’s the worst of the homeschooling teasing, I’ll take it.
