I started clay tiles for a near-future dazzling art project.
Madd made two more bowls while the clay was out and on the table... the one she made a couple of days ago cracked while it was drying. hmmph.
We played "Hey Mom... guess what this is!"
Two chapters of The Princess Bride were read to the children. I cried. :)
There was research today.
And a looong game of Earthopoly. (Trev's choice.)
Silly putty making.
And Math Animals. (Also Trev's choice.)
Madd played too, for a while.
We also stayed around the livingroom's table for a game of Rumis,
and then a couple rounds of Mancala.
It's verra cold out there (hovering just around zero) , but Mama Nature is generous, and she is bestowing upon us Sunshine to keep our hearts light.
For me today had a little bit of an "interim" feeling - movies in the mail, books piling up for us at the library, tiles to dry, bowls to set, cupcakes to get made - but of course there is no such thing as "living in between" for the children.
For them all is Now and Good and the Present, and that is as it should be.
Certainly all is well and fine here.
