Some weeks you get a lot done. Other weeks are like this one. Both homeschool co-op and university classes concluded this week, and end of semester grading takes a lot of time.
On the last day of my classes, I close by reading from C.S. Lewis’ The Abolition of Man. In specific, I read the lecture titled “Men Without Chests”. I need the regular reminder that we seek to deal with our young and adult birds deal with their young when teaching them to fly–not as the poultry keeper deals with the birds he raises. That formation process, not just job skills, lies at the heart of everything we do for our kiddos. The job skills matter too, but they are not the center.
Any new sets?
Actually, no. I’m still working on the Batcave sets that I started parting out two weeks ago. I listed and put away most of the lots already. In fact, some have already sold out! But I’ve still got over 200 lots that I’m working on counting. I want to make certain I list only the correct number in the unlikely event that a piece went missing. That’s the down side of taking on over 25,000 parts in one project.
I’m not certain I can finish this and grade this next week. It might hinge on how that monitoring appointment goes for my wife…
