Starting again - mom post

Many days I feel that educating the kids at home is an interminable slog, and perhaps it is.  But, today I feel a small sense of the fleetingness of it....

Esther got out the Cuisinaire rods today and is working on sums, or just the idea of what a sum is... and I thought, we've been here before, with a different little one, a different set of personality traits.

God be with me as I purpose to leash my impatience and my quick temper and try to be gentle with these gifts from God.
