Breaking My Math Fast

A couple of days without math and I am feeling itchy and unfulfilled. I am working through the last half of Saxon’s Algebra II in order to start Advanced Math after Thanksgiving. The boys and I work silently at the table on our 30 problems for about an hour and a half. It feels exactly like the clean burn after a sweaty exercise, without the need for a shower. It makes me feel stronger all day, and this week after missing a three days I feel the restlessness to get back in the zone.

I find this a bit of a surprise.

I tend a perennial garden with a riot of blossoms, ride my bicycle in and out of the watershed, play ocarina and a boom-chick accompaniment when my kids feel like playing contradance music. I love being home, but I love an open road and adventure, too. Classical Conversations' Writers Circle carries my article on some aspect of classical education once a month.
