I couldn't have asked for a sweeter rebound from the science fair debacle. This is what I saw when I peeked into the kids' room just now as I was vacuuming. As delightful as it is to see my children reading voluntarily, I was over the moon to catch them practically nose-to-nose while doing so.
(And can I just add that they cleaned up the entire house so I could vacuum, without being asked?)
Broken hearts are swift to mend.
