I think I will remember this particular time in my life as really happy. We get to have lots of family time together. We’ve made huge improvements lately: I’ve found a greater emotional stability. My daughter stopped sucking her finger twice now, and I think this second one will last. My older kids have better handwriting, they read all the time, and they do really well at math. SR is learning how to read, slowly and stubbornly, and mostly stubbornly. Little EE is strong-willed and talks in sentences and thinks she’s grown up. I love learning at home. I love teaching my kids. It’s really hard sometimes, but we keep going, and there is a lot of joy and satisfaction in finding happiness in hard times.
