I could just see the little girl with her legs up on the chair, trying to pull it in closer to the desk. I used to do that. Precious story.

Wonderful, the detail made the story. Thank you.
A truly sweet story. Mothers choke up over things like this. And your writing style matched the subject matter. Well done.

Oh, David - I couldn't figure out your hint, and I am SO glad you threw a brick! This is truly lovely. Your details of this five year old are EXACTLY right (trust me, I have one right now!!) and your voice is perfect. This made me smile inside AND out! Great detail.

David, this is a wonderful tribute to mothers who home school their children. I cherish the little notes my boys gave me, esp. now that they are young adults. Bless you for bringing back the memories.

Delightful journey into a child's perspective. Very visual descriptions gave me a strong sense of place. Well done.
This little girl really came to life for me. I could picture her clearly. This is a very sweet story.
