We found ourselves with an extra bit of time this morning, as our first meeting with the Dangerous Book Club for Boys was postponed this week.
I'm telling you this, because isn't that a fine idea? (It wasn't mine!) I think this is the greatest thing... a group for boys to have rocket experiments, skate at the skate park, go on a letterboxing adventure, play video games, learn to use pocket knifes... so, so clever, I think! (I thought some of you might be interested in setting up your own Dangerous Book Club for Boys, so I wanted to share with you.)
Anyway - with the couple extra hours we started hangin' our ghostly and ghastly treasures.
Pretty soon it was time for our unschooling meeting at one of our favorite haunts... the Utah Museum of Natural History. So off we went!
Today we got to talk to a lady who told us about the new (museum) building under construction, and my smart friend Julie asked another lady if we could have proposal signs to put in our yards to promote the vote for Proposition 1, to make sure the museum gets the funding it needs this year.
We're very excited to get to paint and then display it!
We've been rockstars today.
And we've done lots of research on Bigfoot.
We've watched Wallace and Gromit
noticed falling leaves
eaten about 3 gallons of fresh-from-the-garden salsa
and we've made meat-a balls-a. [said with an Italian accent].
And, now, as the evening arrives, bringing cool, cool winds and dark gray clouds,
we're gettin' ready to settle and snuggle in.
I think it's bringing Autumn with it.
