I believe this depicts Is-a-belle's feelings as of late. While she likes her and finds her fascinating, she would rather her not live here. At least that is all I have to explain the endless cycle of bad behavior.
As for the homeschooling we are still in planning mood I have spent hours deep in lesson planning and reading upcoming lessons only 14 days to go. But on a fun note I am going to start reading The Indian in the Cupboard aloud tomorrow. I also found an AWESOME art book for co-op, and a sweet bomber jacket for Trent on Ebay for $3.00.
