Does not Wisdom Call?

Any number of verses from Proverbs would do for a title,
1:8 "Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching..."
3:13 "Blessed is the one who finds wisdom,...";
9:1 "Wisdom has built her house..."(a small shelter with our books);
10:1 "A wise son makes glad his father..."

The Boys' books from Florida Virtual Academy came two days ago. (Stewart was 4ft. 8 last time we measured him.) Today John-Thomas and I got around to breaking all the boxes down (there were boxes within boxes like some sick Christmas gift box) We filled up 3 garbage bags full of packing material and still had enough curriculum to fill up four shelves on two different bookshelves and one large square basket on the floor. I am going to have my work cut out for me this year and am looking forward to the challenge. Wonder how long I'll have that go get'm attitude, normally I lose it by Thanksgiving...What do I need to learn this year? Proverbs 1:7 is a good place to start "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction." What wisdom and instruction am I despising?

Okay...that is a lot of books! Would love to see how many there actually were....but can imagine with your description of the bookshelves!
I too have the "go get'em" attitude at the beginning of something and then it fizzles out...why is that?
