Well, as I was trying to collect the kids to begin our school work for the day, this is what I found:
Emma was reading her "Little House" Chapter Book, since it had to be returned to the library today and she had not had a chance to read it yet. Caleb was reading about Joan of Arc leading the French against England in war out of the Childcraft Encyclopedia set. But, it had to be a cool story, there were pictures of knights, and armor, and war.
I decided the "work" I had planned could wait.
