It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

I didn't realize that Nan had snapped this picture of Jo's first Phonics lesson. We are taking a video of ourselves saying our short vowel A poem.  We are using The Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading by Jesse Wise. So it is new to both Jo and I this year!
