still not quite up to full speed with our studies here. life just keeps asking to be lived. first we had a houseguest, so our learning year started a week later than i was planning. but that week was filled with drawing + conversation + good food.
in these last two weeks we’ve had long mornings at the park, bento-style lunch outside, oats + poems, a morning with our midwife friend picking green beans, tomatoes, and apples, another morning with our neighbor, Joseph. he lost his wife three weeks ago, so his children got him a tiny kitty named Bella to keep him company. we had a wonderful time playing with all two pounds of her!
we are right on track with our ABC Saints + Storybooks studies. two favorites coming up for C Week: Barbara Cooney + St Columba! we’ve got another full week with park days + game nights + movies together on the big screen. and AP is squeezing in a few more house projects before the weather turns. new gutters! clean windows! refreshed spaces!
even though we’re only doing a minimal amount of school, our time hasn’t been wasted in any sense.
