As I sit here in my study, reading Descartes’ Mediations, I am hearing Jacob and Mary grill each other over Latin: “That’s third declension nominative plural!”
     “No, that’s third declension nominative singular!”
     It is such a joy to me that they are well on their way.  I can remember teaching them their letter sounds.  I can remember teaching them to read.  I can remember crying on the floor when Jacob could not sound out the word “circus.”
     And now they are vying for the higher grade in Latin.  Praise be to God that their educations have worked!
