There’s always a First.
There will be a lot of Firsts on this journey of ours.
Yesterday we had a big one of these – the first day of homeschooling aboard.
Surprised, Adriana and I were awaken by Paulo just after dawn today. He brought a small pig-shapped timer, set it tick-tacking beside our bed, and said we had 30 minutes to get ready because today was the first day of class ( ! ).
They covered Math, Grammar and Geography.
When class was over, i was outside fixing something on deck when i heard the greatest thing that could have been said … both kids, unsolicited, told Adriana they had learned a lot, and thanked her for class. Kudos to the teacher!
