Hooligan Zoo

Two Zookeepers… many Hooligans… It's always feeding time at this zoo!

It’s funny how now that the older two hooligans are 7 and almost 6, that when they have friends over, it’s actually EASIER for me than when it’s just them.

What?  More kids make it EASIER?

We had two friends over for a sleepover last night, and I kid you not, I did not see those children until they were hungry/someone was hurt/it was bedtime.

They spent a lot of time jumping….

And some more time jumping…

And then there was the jumping.

You know, that’s one of the things I love about homeschooling. That it didn’t matter that it was a “school” night, that there was no homework to do. That after all the jumping, and the exploring, and the telling me about all the neat things they did, they were still learning.

They learned how to make things fair. They learned how to get along between four children, four different ages, two girls and two boys. They figured out on their own how to get the smallest one ON the trampoline… and didn’t even think to ask me. They were indomitable, these four. There was limited whining, until one of them was hungry.

This is life, right here. A beautiful, wonderful life.
