Head Start

Now that my wife has been home schooling for a while (six weeks), something of a routine has developed for the children in the morning before the actual learnin' commences. It goes something like this:

#1 A recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance while looking at the American flag flying outside the window.

#2 Singing the first verse of "My Country 'Tis of Thee" while marching in place (don't ask).

#3 Praying the "Our Father" on the couch with hands clasped together.

Pretty much the same way the day starts in most schools, isn't it?
