Sometimes it's nice to get dressed up and feel like an adult.
Another virtual poetry tea session with our homeschool friends in Azerbaijan. Today's writing exercise was inspired by Sharon Draper's book, Out of My Mind. Lots of discussions have been happening in our house around this book and Camille has been enjoying the Arrow on-line book group discussion of it. On a different note, I like the s curve in Camille 's part.
Soup, Scandinavian mysteries, Lysol, and binge-watching The Gilmore Girls. It's been quite a doozy of a week and it's only Wednesday. Adam had emergency surgery (appendix) on Monday night. The kids and I have Influenza B. The dog had a seizure last night. And the library pile is getting dangerously low.
Found poetry: old magazines, sharpies, and washi tape. Circle words, make your own poems, and embellish them. Incredibly addicting and satisfying .
This morning's history class was taught by Cokie Roberts. We love the author talks at @politicsprose #homeschoolindc
Messages by the kitchen door, Fresh Air on the radio, kids snacking, dog napping...the lull before Tuesday afternoon activities start. I like the lulls.
Grammar quiz and a big plate of hamantaschen. Thanks to help from @erafaelof we added poppyseed to our usual line up of apricot, raspberry, and Nutella. And here's a weird thought that came to me yesterday...wouldn't Dolly Parton be a great Queen Esther?
Having a great time @braincandylive ! And love seeing so many others who get a kick out of science. See if their tour is coming to your neck of the woods.
Caviar chips, passion fruit oatmeal, apricot marshmallows, and other interesting goodies all the way from Azerbaijan! It's nice to have friends in far flung spots who understand our love for foreign junk food. Anxiously waiting for our visas and hoping to spend spring break in Baku.
