Liam and Reid have been hard at work homeschooling. Because Liam is in a protracted concussion recovery and is not able to use screens for hours at a time, we’ve needed to invent some of our own material. The kids have been reading a ton: currently Percy Jackson, Trevor Noah’s memoir (some would question the appropriateness here, but we sure have laughed a lot), and LeGuin’s Earthsea. The kids have been productive writers as well. Below is Liam’s review of the survivalist novel Brian’s Winter.

Reid recently finished this report on the moon:

Life is busy with online teaching and work for adults, as well as homeschooling kids, but we’re having fun. Love to all!

      We’ve read Hatchet, but will go looking for more. Thanks for the reply, Mary and Sam!

    we recommend that Liam post his book review on Amazon and state his age. It was fun to read. We thought Reid’s facts about the moon were fascinating. When Reid started his report describing the astronaut flying back to earth, it reminded us that Reid’s mom knows a girl who attended her grade school who is today an astronaut. She recently had an article in our local paper talking about what a person needs to do to become an astronaut. Love, O’da and Sal

      We will read this article, Sal and O’da–thanks for pointing us to it. The suggestion to put Liam’s review on Amazon is a great idea. Much love from all of us!
