First thing in the morning Maddie pulled her can of ice out of the freezer... so eager to make her next tin lantern.
Trev and I started a blog for him; he's mentioned wanting one a couple of times lately, so this was the day.
He started on a story he's been thinking about for a little while, now.
And Maddie plays Jumpstart.
After a while of computer play, I asked the children if they'd like to check out something cool.
I had colored some sections of paper with different colored markers, and rounded up two magnifying glasses. "Go get your sunglasses, and meet me on the driveway," I said.
It's been a while since I have picked up my recorder and made this (er... organized) sort of music. It makes me so happy!
(Very favorite instruments? In no particular order: violin, recorder, guitar, and harmonica.)
I'll happily share.
There were animal studies, of course,
and more spiral art.
We watched a film clip about Sal Kahn, talked about mathematics and math studies,
and checked out our library book, Trick of the Eye. Art and illusion.
Wanderings and wonderings.
It's a fine life.
