May 27, 2011


My son has been doing a very intense writing course in English. The book has him do maybe a dozen little paragraphs every day. He’s tired of writing paragraphs (even though I tell him that’s what I do all day long, too!) and his writing has become a bit droll. As I was proofreading another […]
