jumpstart world first grade
and still. :)
the (preserved) fall leaves are done. (I'll be showing you how that went.)
much, much different than wax, I thought at first. waxed ones keep their (curved and crackled) shape, these are flat and pliable (rather limp)... and they feel like silk leaves. that was a surprise, that the texture was so interesting.
Maddie said... "Ooh, what's this?? It feels like a peach!"
she's right, it does.
as the day wore on, however, they started curling as they dried. which I actually prefer, as a little natural curve is what I wanted.
jumpstart for Madd, still. :) she's loving it, today.
Othello for Trevy and I.
I won--but only barely. I reminded him that I was playing ruthlessly (and I am the Othello champion), ergo he had nothing to be ashamed of. : )
loves to the green babies.
(for all three)
jumpstart world first grade for one (surprise!!!)
and cluefinders: reading for the other.
minecraft for one,and the geo-shapes game for Maddie and me.
and Freddy Fish 4: The Case of the Hogfish Rustlers of Briny Gulch.
Trev picked out cuisenaire rods to play with today.
"wanna play now, Bud?"
Nim! love nim.
play of the rasslin' sort for the babes,
and sudoku for the mama.
yup. that's pretty much what my front porch -and front yard- usually look like. : ) yes, I do feel sorry for our neighbors. however; I love my children even more than that. (and I did suggest the backyard and a lowered clothes line when Maddie was playing pioneer the other day and wanted to hang cloths on the front fence. :) )
it's not so much the Doing that was so lovely today, but rather the Being.
lots of laughter, and spirits were very, very easy.
all is well here.
