I think it bodes well for the notion of homeschooling in the future that I really enjoyed having Erika home from school for the last two weeks, and I'm sort of sad that she's back at school now.

It was especially nice to get to see her in the morning, when she's awake. I was amazed at the amount of time she was interested in spending drawing, which inspired me to reorganize our supply of paper for easier access by children. She also spent an astonishing amount of time on the readingeggs.com web site, which was interesting for me. I sat with her almost all of the time, and learned a lot about what she finds easy and what she finds hard when dealing with the written word.

This experience also tells me that Karl is getting much easier to deal with now that he's a little older. Yes, he still throws things, climbs on people, and is a general nuisance sometimes. But it's definitely improving. I even managed to take both kids to the zoo a week and a half ago without getting frustrated and annoyed.
