Took a day off from intellectual homeschooling yesterday and cleaned the house. It was great! The kids helped as they should since they play a big role in making the mess. We also finished reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond. It took me six weeks to read the first half (mostly because we moved) and about two hours to read the second half, all aloud. I thought I might end up hoarse after yesterday's endeavor, but the bottle of water that I kept nearby seemed to do the trick. Last night, we went to the family meal at church and then stayed after for the service and fellowship. It felt good to be back. I am finally settling in again.
