Homeschooling

Like most aspects of parenting, homeschooling has had almost nothing in common with my expectations of it, and intermittently drives me crazy.

And then there are times like this.

My 8 year old daughter, finishing re-reading “The Hobbit”, preparatory to reading “Lord Of The Rings.”

Concern
sadness
grief

I’ve always loved sharing books and ideas with people. I feel so blessed to be part of this.

  1. It’s so refreshing and cheering to see someone reading for pleasure as your daughter is. Books I read decades ago as a child tend to return in my adulthood. Mulligan and Margalo, two favorite characters of mine from childhood reading, found themselves recast as names of software I wrote for a company I once worked for. Perhaps these strange names induced a sense of deja vu in my coworkers. Also, how strange the experience of rereading Stuart Little at 40 and discovering that EB White was also writing to adults. Brooke, you might sometime write here about books for your childhood and how their message has changed over your life.
