Tuesday. A Day In the Life

Starting this post mid-morning, not knowing what the day shall hold.
We'll see!  First thing Maddie adapted Steve, so he'll hold tools.  (She finished him last night, added the handhold today.)

Clock play.
"Can you make it..... 2:30?"  I asked when she picked it up.  "Here, I'll show you....."

"I want to make it the correct time.... what time is it?"
(And that's pretty much the way it goes with unschooling.... rather than six months of papers and lectures, we get a few minutes of "here... this is the way this works", instead.)

The favorite heat vent.

Breakfast.  Dragons and oatmeal with blueberries.

"Mom.  Will you call on my computer now, so we can get it fixed?"
Turns out, the warranty amount is just about all used up, so.....

I get to add 'Dell Inspiron 14z 5423' to the list of computer innards (and repairs) I'm familiar with.

Train making!

Clock, again.

Train fancifying.
Whilst humming.
Oh, wait-- 'tisn't a train anymore.  Now it's a car.
"Car repair, for Susan (her friend), and a new paint job."

 "How about this?  The crystal coral garden?"
Measuring, pounding, setting.
"How long does it take?  A few days?" they wanted to know.
"It says in only a few minutes it starts!"

"I wanna clean."
"Okay.  Where would you like to clean?  In here, the den?"

Fairies and pixie dust.

Xbox for one.

Clock play.  Again.

Car repair.
Adding a baby seat and seatbelt.

French bread.

Math Animals.

First with one, then the other.

3ds for one (Pokemon)
and more fairies--Tinkerbell the Pirate Fairy, actually.

Clean sheets for everyone!

Bread's done.

Car repairs.
Some fine tuning going on, there.

Spaghetti's almost done.....

and Mama is verra, verra tired, all of a sudden.

Let's call that 'good enough', shall we?

'Til tomorrow, then.


  1. My son, Matt, is drooling over your french bread :)

    Looks like a wonderful day!

  2. A loves our heater vent! He takes a blanket and makes heat bubbles when the fan goes on. Looks like you had a lovely day.


Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
