Have you ever seen a more conducive learning environment?? Hallie is still plugging away on her summer school course – she’s moved on to the second semester of world history. Learning at home is infinitely easier when everyone is learning at home. When 4 of the 5 kids are enjoying summer and one is still studying it makes it a little difficult.

Don’t worry, Briggs is keeping her comfortable and making sure she has everything she needs in her “school fort” – including a pool floaty…just in case. He brings her water and keeps her company, brings her bowls of snacks (I think he does this selfishly because he ends up eating most of them!) She’s a good sport and rarely makes Briggs feel like he can’t come hang out with her at the table. When she really needs quiet she puts on noise cancelling headphones and locks herself in another room.
