"If you sit down at set of sun
And count the acts that you have done,
And, counting find
One, self-denying deed,
That eased the heart of him
One glance most kind
That fell like sunshine
where it went -
Then you may count that day well spent.
But if, through all the livelong day,
You've cheered no heart, by yea or nay -
If, through it all
You've nothing done that you can trace
That brought the sunshine to one's face -
No act most small
That helped some soul and nothing cost -
Then count that day as worse than lost."
- George Elliot

The kids were begging for school today. I explained that it is a Saturday and usually kids don't have school on Saturday. They insisted they wanted school... we had a full and fun day of lessons. Really, how can I say no to kids who are begging to learn!? We enjoyed reading The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton, "Tabby Cat" read a story to us, we did a couple math lessons, and a science study of trees. Fortunately I had done all my lesson plans for Monday on Friday night! Now to make new lesson plans for Monday.
