Conversations around our house can be quite dizzying to keep up with. The kids all have stuff they want to say or stories to tell. And Sarah gets into some interesting discussions in her Traditio (Latin for tradition) class that will make it's way to the table each night. (Somehow, tonight it caused Rob and I to burst into a rousing rendition of Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog...the children were at one and the same time entertained and slightly nervous :-)And right now we are reading "A House For My Name" by Peter Liethart together and that brings questions and exclamations when they hear something they either haven't heard before or they connect it to something they do know.

All in all it is a great part of our day. Tonight's gem goes to Sam for his heartfelt thoughts on dinner itself.
"Sorry, Mom. I like the taste of the meat better than the vegetables. I'm still stuck on not liking the squash."
I realize it isn't as funny reading it as hearing him say it...but trust me. It was funny.
