Work, school and life lessons.
The youngest kid got up this morning at 6:00 a.m., did all of his school work and then fell back to sleep on the couch. Now he's got the afternoon off to do as he pleases. The girl got up at noon, as usual (beauty sleep!) and is doing her school work now. She's got a guitar lesson this afternoon. Time management is one of the things they are learning, I suppose. Her Dad took extra time with her this week on math and she's back up to speed and doing fine.
I learned a lesson on envy yesterday. There's this woman I've met online whose life I have kind of envied. They are wealthy. They have traveled and adopted kids from overseas and were starting a nonprofit to help others. She seemed to me to have it all together. Then yesterday she went public with something that gave me quite a shock and reminded me that no one's life is perfect and made me very thankful for the life that I have.
