|Don't you love the stripes?|
Rinar stayed home with all the kids today, except Raef. Everyone was coughing and spewing germs. We didn't want to share that with the rest of our ward members.
We start school again tomorrow. Raef and Zach are going to notice a sizeable increase in their work load. They are going to have more writing and reading and just time to study. They need it. They will be 10 soon and have really matured academically. I think that they are ready for new challenges. I look forward to seeing what this year will bring. I have spent several days cleaning out the school room and rearranging things. It is a fresh new look for a fresh new year.
