A Hard Day's Work

I love home schooling my youngers. They take everything so seriously. The other day we were all at the table working away when I asked Aedan to bring in some wood for the fire. He went out and gathered it up and I put it in the stove. Then I asked him to go back and pick up his boots he left in the foyer.

When he was finished he came back and said, "Mama, I put my boots up is there anything else you would like me to do?"

I looked around and saw that his jacket and gloves had been put up properly and said, "No, thank you, you did a good job and that is all I have for you."

Aedan asked, "May I go back to my school then?"

"Yes, son."

He ran back to his seat while saying, "Oh, good! I need to catch up on my coloring."



  1. How sweet! I love it when my kids have those helpful sort of days.

  2. sweet boy indeed. you certainly don't want to fall behind in coloring!! :)

  3. That's so sweet. Can't leave your coloring unfinished.

  4. Kat,

    You know at least he is dedicated with his coloring. Can't wait to see it perhaps do a post on what the kids are learning right now?

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
