Changes have been made, but not to our schedule. Wonder of wonders, I think I'm getting the hang of this plate-spinning gig. It's still not my preferred way to live, but at least I'm no longer grouchy or miserable. And here's what's keeping me going:
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.Ain't it the truth? So we're cruising at high speed around here, and I'm not worrying about tomorrow.
-- Matthew 6:34
Anyway, this week was a good one. The usual things went on as they should, and here are a few highlights.
- Miss Priss and I worked on fractions (again) for a part of the week, equivalencies and simplifying fractions. Here's a snippet of our real conversation:
Me (excitedly): You're really getting this!
Her (off-handedly): No. I just play along.
- We also continued our study of the brain. This great mini-video from Discovery Health helped us out.
- Our History Pockets project for the week was a diagram of a Southern plantation. They are not quite complete -- hence, no photos. We also enjoyed reading George Washington's World; Abigail Adams: Witness to a Revolution; and This Country of Ours. Due to my education hand-wringing earlier in the year, we're behind; but I'm not going to let that bother me. Much.
-The girls are enjoying Robinson Crusoe more now that I'm reading it aloud.
- In our artist study, we considered Jacob Blessing the Sons of Joseph and Woman with a Pink, in our What Makes a Rembrandt a Rembrandt? book.
