Devotions were done. Math was finished. Penmanship was complete. Phonics was out of the way. And it was only 9:30 am. Rather than move on to history and reading, I mandated a timeout from school work and the kids and I spent the next two hours wandering a local nature preserve.
- Micah face-planted into the water. I'm not sure how, but then again, I never stopped to wonder how because it was Micah. And falling off of a rock face first is a highly probable thing when it's Micah. A quick, "Hop up, you're okay!" and he was smiling while wiping mud and leaves off his hair.
Best unexpected school recess. Ever.
