When a girl chooses to do her handwriting on the living room floor, she attracts all sorts of attention.

Kittens focus in.  And try to take control of the pencil.

How about a leaf instead?

Nope, the pencil is way more interesting.

But the pony-tails….those are pretty attractive too.

It takes serious dedication to get your handwriting done around here, with the wildcats pouncing all around.

Luckily this girl has what it takes.

  31. Mary,
    Can you suggest some good handwriting books for my 5 year old? Apprecite any help with this.

  32. SO adorable!!! Your home looks like such a peaceful place! I am in awe that your daughter kept going on her homework and wasn’t too distracted by the kitty! I am also in awe that you are homeschooling so many children! We are currently doing Kindergarten with our 5yo son… he loves it, and so do I. 🙂 Our younger son, who is 3, is very active and nowhere near ready to do any schooling yet! 🙂
