Well, it's up in the mornin' tryin' to find a job of work.

I love my job. I awake almost every morning in shear surprise and awe that this is my life.. I teach an English Language Learners class to Spanish speakers at a factory from 7:15 to 8:15 in the morning on Mondays and Wednesdays (which I love) and am home by 9:30 to teach the children.

And though, at one point today, I asked Eli to go wash all of the black marker from his hands as it was a crayola and getting everywhere and he was caught with toothpaste all over his hands instead of soap, we still are pretty calm with one another. Today, we made a sundial, harvested sunflower seeds from our sunflower playhouse, tested and hypothesized about condensation, read and wrote, told stories, read books, and involved the dog and cat in all sorts of scenarios that they barely tolerated...
