I have to stop and think what we even did today if it was earlier than noon. That is sad....I guess. I know that the kids picked tomatoes and I hung out some laundry. This afternoon, Matthew asked to do some practice driving. What started as a one hour drive, turned into a four hour adventure. Between paying bills, turning in insurance information which I had forgotten, returning Erik's crutches, mailing stuff and paying more bills, and.....accidentally being in the neighborhood of Better World Books and stopping in.....this all took awhile. We even managed to get lost for a small while and explored an area I had never been to in our quest to get reoriented. Of course we had a hilarious time. Every driving student (child) of mine has been an enjoyable time for me.
The evening was spent quickly preparing and eating dinner, going to a Divine Service at church, saying goodbye to a dear young friend who will be missed this school year and then returning to spend a few hours with Martin in helping him figure out how to use a computer. I suppose I should be ashamed (?) that my fourteen year old does not know how to navigate a website, but he has never cared before. He now wants to learn how to type as doing what he is doing now takes up too much time. Smart boy. I love natural consequences of past resistance to such skills. I should not take too much pleasure in that.
I am sure we will pick up where we left off in the morning.
