We began our day by opening up The Princess Bride. (We had planned to begin it the other day but life got away from us. It happens a lot around here.) It's one of my favorite stories, and I think my children will love it. For those of you who haven't read it, it's just like the movie! Danger! True Love! Giants! Battles! Poison! Heroes! Death! :)
Checked on our bowls.
Maddie made a beautiful picture, which I shall be framing.
Because she made it just for me.
Trev spent much of the early part of his day between his Godzilla scenes and his computer.
And we played Math Animals.
And The Allowance Game.
I asked if it was cool if we started George Washington, and it was, so we read the intro and first chapter, and Trev wanted to keep going, so we read the next one, too.
While we were reading George, I realized that we needed to put him on the timeline, so when we were done, I did so. And we put on Rosa Park's quiet stand, as well as Martin Luther King Jr.... and the four of us.
There was wresting with Dad
and patching up toys (again/still)
and the rest of the day just sort of did what it wanted to do.
We discussed genetics and ethics and the ways of the world for a goodly amount of our afternoon.
We didn't quite get to Lewis & Clark (our thoughts went here after George Washington), or building cities with blocks... maybe today? Oh, and Maddie's cupcakes. And a trip to the library...
We'll see how today goes!
All is well here.
