The teenager is reading aloud to the littles, The Trumpet of the Swan by EB White! This is the second day in a row. They sit for chapter after chapter after chapter.... They were bored yesterday and I almost caved and let them watch tv/ play video games, something reserved for after dinner. It’s vacation so all they have to do is piano and silent reading. But low and behold, they can figure out how to entertain themselves. Moral of this story: Don’t over-schedule them. Don’t cave. Boredom can force beautiful things.
