Tannis: Ivy, what do you want to do this afternoon?
Ivy: Hmmm...reading, writing and drawing....but no school.
So maybe that doesn't actually reveal too much about how it's really going, but I thought it was hilarious. I think Tannis is doing an amazing job with the balancing act of keeping them focused at times, and following their leads at other times. They're plowing through the "school" parts, and seem to have lots of time to follow their own rabbit trails and interests. The one-day-a-week classes in Penticton are going well, including Ivy's school-provided violin lessons while Ella's in class. And they've both started gymnastics, so it's not like we're all stuck in the house all the time.
