We seem to be a little "all or nothing" these days. Just when I thought that balance is the key... we have a day that goes well, where "haphazard" seems to be the best way to describe it. At one point today after NOT having Gus write anything... Gus asked me to LET him write (at a time when I had neither the time nor intention of having him write....) Maybe the hands off approach and zero pressure (as opposed to my recent approach of zero-tolerance) actually might work. Today we were as close to Unschooled as you could be... and it was great AND they each did lots of math... and they both tried to recite a poem I've been reading to them AND they both painted without fighting AND they played together at Gene's game... Why ask why....

AND to top off this extraordinary day it looks like we might be able to hope for a better America... Obama is going to win....
