We had a good day today anyways. Holly left for work early this morning so I didn’t get to talk to her and there was nothing we needed so I didn’t want to hold her up anyways. Yesterday I did my laundry and this morning I slept in a little and didn’t wake up until almost 6 am. She and I started the day with our usual talk and I wrote to Rosemary and paid my power bill so I didn’t go down stairs until late. I got my breakfast and Luke was down stairs before I finished my bowl of fruit. He and I had a great day again today. We have decided we are happiest just taking care of each other. Landen had a date with his girl friend and there was nothing we needed from him so we were glad for him. He wasn’t as lucky as we were as he got a flat tire in the mountains and had to be towed into town. He did call and let us know where he was, I was glad he let me know and that he knew what to do and didn’t need me to try and help. Luke and I did some algebra, then some reading, and played a game. Then we had lunch and did some more reading, he started a new book and is doing a great job with his oral reading. Then we did some English grammar and worked on verbs today and complete sentences. We did some spelling and put the spelling words into sentences. He does a good job with that now, the cursive writing has helped him with that. Writing isn’t as hard for him now and he knows what a sentence is and how to diagram it so he knows when he has a complete sentence.
This after noon we also began the new book Iwill read to him in the mornings as we finished Soft Rain, the story of the Trail of Tears. It was a good book and really teaches about that from a child’s point of view so he could identify with the children that were forced to walk all that way. Now I get to spend a little time working on my music and I am almost collecting all the songs we used to listen to. I am done for the day. About 5 I will make sandwiches of Luke and me for supper, Landen and Holly take care of themselves so it so easy for me now. Once I learned to keep my nose out of other’s business I am much happier. It is hard for a mother to learn that but there does come a time in every woman’s life that they just have to learn to let people do as they wish and keep quiet. Luke and I are both happier for and having fun as we both learn. I still have not gotten out side and taken any pictures but I hope to soon. Maybe Luke can help me.
Time to get going. Have a great day,
