Last night while I was watching the children build their halloween house:"Why dontcha put the jack-o-lanterns on so you can see their faces?"
"Well... they're inverted."
Cracked me up.
The children were talking about having races. I offered to make an obstacle course for them.
Trevelyn wanted to work on the timeline. The Jurassic period.
While working on it, Maddie picked up the meter stick, and started pointing and lecturing at will - which meant making it up as she went along. :) Was pretty funny. (Though... certainly not to Trevelyn, who of course takes prehistory Very Seriously.)Don't know where she has seen that. Not from her Mama, certainly.
While it was in her hand, she proved the theory of "meeting in the middle" with a yardstick again. And again and again. Cool how that works. Cool that she remembered.
While still down there (working on the timeline), Trev was reading a few of the names on our wall, and read my beloved Albert's name. I told him that we was one of my all-time favorite people, and showed him a book that we have.
And then read it to him.
He loved it. Said it was awesome. :) I learned some new things.
There's been lots of ScoobyDoo today.
And imaginary play.
Grammy came by for a visit and fell in love with the paper jack-o-lanterns. Wants some for her window, so....
Checked on our bones. Evidently the bones are soaking up the vinegar through the two ends, as the middle is still more white (not a brownish gray) and still firm. I suppose it has to do with marrow and the way cells move through the bones? Interesting.
Speaking of vinegar....A favorite.
Looks like dinner,
and to the library for us.
A lovely day full of flow and ease. Good enough.
We'll see you tomorrow.
