Hit the Ground Running

Today was our first day back at the school books. We're on a new schedule-- let's call it "outcome based," and by that I mean getting up earlier than we had been and staying on task until all the necessaries are done. The kids seem to be acclimating well, I'm going to need a few days to get used to it. See, I don't like to talk too much before 8:00 AM, but Alex was firing questions at the breakfast table...

"Mama, Mama, Mama, um...How do mountains become sand?"

"Um...Mama, Mama, Mama...Why are some very little things heavier than some very big things?"

Erosion and density are two things I prefer to discuss AFTER I've had my coffee. We'll get there.
