Today I managed to get one of my children caught up with his schoolwork. He was happy about that as he's my normally "poky" one. If I could just find things for him to learn that he's interested in, life might be a little easier. I applaud all the moms and dads out there who are able to teach hands-on learners. I can't stand the messes (although my house is far from clean.) Now to get the other boy caught up...he's my whiz in school but doesn't like to apply himself.
