Every time I ask my oldest to sit down and work, he comes up with every excuse in the book to delay the inevitable.
Today, I printed out some sorting printables that I had created and gave them to my second oldest. He was was having so much fun just scribbling over the pages that it sparked the curiosity of my oldest. Before I knew it, he wanted some "fun papers" of his own. I love when learning becomes so much fun that they don't realize that they are working!
