We started school last week. Maybe I should just stop there.

It's been hard. I like my clean and organized school cabinet though.
1st grade is going well. Drawing pirate scenes makes it even better.
3rd grade is the one that blindsided me. Both the intensity of the curriculum and the attitude of the student. We will work through it and be ok.

Anyone want to give an opinion on the worth of memorizing the Preamble of the Constitution? I'm going back and forth.

Meh. Preamble isn't important. I don't know it, and teach social studies. Being able to read it and understand why it is written the way it is and what they were thinking when they wrote it, knowing about the Enlightenment ideas that sparked it, and so on are far more important than memorizing words that mean nothing. And IMO, a third grader isn't ready for those advanced concepts.
