Time for School

My children never hear me when I need them to come to the table for school work. They don't hear me that is, unless I holler! I don't like to holler. It's unladylike. :-( I have discovered that they can hear this! It sounds so much nicer than Mama hollerin'...and I get to feel a little like Laura Ingalls ringing the school bell! ;-)

Do you have a little bell around the house you could use to call the children
