Riley woke up this morning with two questions:
1) Does my hair look like a rat’s nest?
2) Do rats really have nests?
And so we’re studying the habitats of rats today.
And Riley is writing more of her graphic novel.
And Seth is playing. As in…he’s conceptualizing a play, involving Harry Potter characters dressed in Star Wars costumes. There are lasers and catapults and hang gliders and crashes.
After lunch we’re off to homeschool music class, for rhythms and dance. It’s a “typical” class, in a room that’s kind of like a small auditorium. Last week was the first week, and ten years into this game, I got to sit in the audience, like all the other moms. I didn’t have to be “room mom.” Code for one on one aide.
Riley had one anxious moment, but she asked to “pass” on her turn, and then got right back in. I didn’t have to intervene. Both kids had so much fun.
The better it gets, the better it gets.
We learn, learn, learn as we go.
