As I was readying myself for Mass late yesterday afternoon, I could hear Dylan and Caitlyn in the next room, engaged in a rather spirited conversation regarding school:
Caitlyn: I just love school! I can't WAIT to go to school!
Dylan: Well, Caitlyn, I DON'T like school. And if I stay home and home school, then YOU have to stay home and home school, too.
Caitlyn: Well, I like school...
Dylan: Well, I don't! So you're going to have to stay home and home school with me!
Neither of them has actually ever been to school in the traditional sense, but clearly, they are developing strong opinions on the matter! And to tell the truth, my resolve to home school has actually been wavering in recent weeks. So, to hear the determination in Dylan's voice was actually quite a relief to me! (Although I'm not too sure where this leaves Caitlyn. Thankfully, we've got a few more years to work that out!)
