  1. Meant to post about the homework thing awhile ago...I think there's something going on with teachers and homework lately. When I wen to the open house for the 8th grade and 10th grade, the theme I kept hearing all night long was that the teachers didn't want to give too much homework...they know how busy everyone is, etc...I don't really get this way of thinking; seems like they don't want to bother the parents somehow. Maybe they get too many calls from parents during the year, I have no idea. It just sort of goes against my natural way of thinking about school?? I always thought homework was part of school and it should be assigned nightly. The teachers kept mentioning giving the kids time in class to do the homework. I'm happy to say that my kids do indeed have some homework (10th grader in particular with her AP History class) but it sounds like maybe your daughter's school needs to step it up a bit.

  2. Another fabulous podcast. I love the image of you knitting a cardigan with your sweet little Sam watching over your shoulder, perhaps dreaming of her own first knitting project.
