"There are many such boys and girls,
full of high hopes, lovely possibilities, and earnest plans,
pausing a moment before they push
their little boats from the safe shore. Let those who launch
them see to it that they have good health to man the oars, good education for ballast, and good principles as pilots to guide them as
they voyage down an ever winding river to the sea."

Calculadder and Piano Lessons; a happy mix!
Alex has begun taking part in our Calculadder math drills.... it is so cute to see him 'racing' to get finished! He can finish in 4 minutes now, but the goal is two! Keep up the good work little thinker! Amelia and Daniel would have never done this at his age, but Alex wants to be a part of what the three big kids are doing....
Daniel had his very first ever piano lesson today! He did very well, so says Miss Brianna, and he practiced a good thirty minutes today on his own. He was reluctant to go at first, I have been asking him to consider it for over a year! And one day he just decided to give it a try and it has been all positive since then. I believe he will do well as long as it is a reachable challenge and a little bit of fun....
