"School" is going well for us. What seems to work best is a minimal amount of "school time." Having a little bit of school every day actually seems to help the day go more smoothly than no school at all. Pauly seems to like all of school now. He's no longer struggling with reading and he is tearing through the math book and only a few lessons away from completing it. "School time" is also a time for me to remember to sit and read as many books as they want. Often I'm too lazy or self-focused to do that otherwise.

So, there.

How. . .odd

Brownback has endorsed McCain. I think that odd may be the only way to describe this. Brownback was an ultra conservative pro-life right wing candidate, though he didn't always toe the party line and wasn't above criticizing the Republican leadership, and here he is endorsing a definite moderate who has a checkered past with regard to pro-life issues, among other Republican pet issues. I'm quite surprised.
