Cool days are right around the bend. And yes, the children are ecstatic about it. Elijah was wondering if it’s going to snow now.
I blinked my eyes and checked again. Where is Daniel? I checked the children’s bedrooms to see if he was caring for one of them—no Daniel. Stepping over to the window overlooking our driveway, I blinked again and smiled, looking at the field beyond. Way back, in the back section of our 11-acre field, were the headlights of our tractor as he drove back and forth in the blackness of the wee hours of the early morning.

Have you ever had a chance to fill out one of those “One and Only” sheets? You know those papers that ask questions of all sorts, like where you were born, what your occupation or favorite color, or pet peeve is?
It’s been hanging in the balance for days, even weeks. For some people in church, anticipation mounted at the thought of home schooling our children this term, for others with multiple children, it looked like a tall order. We talked, we weighed pros and cons. Our children, who loved school last year, declared they would like to have school at home this year. In my heart I wanted to teach them more than I could ever tell, yet I realized that daily my time was already stretched to the max as I did my best to care for our six young children and squeeze in house work where I could. I wondered when I would write the column.
It’s early morning, even our early risers with tussled hair, blinking eyes, and big smiles are sound out.
