I still can't believe we're "homeschooling".  It just seems so surreal.  We've been doing things together and learning since you were a little boy. Well, a LITTLER boy.  Only now, it's a mite more "structured".

Anyway, you seem to enjoy school, and just today, said to me, "Mummy, we don't go to "regular school", we go to "home school".  :)

You must have heard that mentioned a few times when people would ask us how old you were, and if you were in school.

( This is beside the point, but sometimes I wonder why people ask.  Are they genuinely interested, or do we look like parents who would neglect a child's education or something?? ).

ANYWAY, last week we did / "rowed" Madeline, and learned a few simple French greetings.  You could remember right away, "Bonjour" and "Merci", but had a little bit of trouble with "S'il vous plait".  So, when suddenly out of the blue, you said, "s'il vous plait" one week later, as we were getting ready to go to bed, I was floored. :)

This week we have been reading "The Rag Coat", and one of the lessons the little girl's daddy teaches her, is that "People only need people, nothing else".  After I had put you to bed last night, and done all the "bao bao kisses" and what not, I retreated back to my room.   I then hear a little voice peeping at me, "Mummy, can you come lay down with me?".  I tell you, "no, but I'm right here where you can see me".  What you said next almost cracked me up.  You go, "But mummy, you said people need people and I need you to come lay down with me!". :)
