Thing 1

I love homeschooling.  I love the many, many opportunities it affords us.

But what I really love?

The F-L-E-X-I-B-I-L-I-T-Y. 

That means that though the workboxes are loaded,

and we could go ahead with this day as any other,

today we're not gonna..

Today, we're outta here...

Semper Gumby!**

**Many, many years ago, when I was but a youngster married to my Marine, a "salty" wife told me that I'd always have to be flexible -- Semper Gumby -- a play on the Marines' motto "Semper Fi" -- Always Faithful.  Honestly, it was one of the best pieces of advice I ever received in regards to being a military wife.  Much more helpful than knowing how many calling cards I'd need (like, 2 -- I have 498 left -- any takers???) or how to host the perfect tea.
