Week 8 - When we were 6
LB turned 6 this week so we had a short week. Birthdays are holidays around here.
The rest of the week we were very busy. Hubby was out of town and it just seemed like everything was harder. I ran out of milk on Thursday. Milk. I never run out of basic things like that.
Mary, Queen of Scots. She finished Black Ships Before Troy which led us to some terrific discussions about archetypes and heroes. She had pottery class plus went to an open pottery session. LB and I got to join the class as replacement for Hubby. It was difficult but fun. She started working through Sew Anything. She is making her own pattern to make a gown this week. She started another mystery story, did her math, made dinner, started reading Eight Cousins, helped paint the kitchen and hallway, and started reading Gods, Goddesses and Monsters which is a book about comparative mythology. She was terrific in fencing although she came home sore because she isn't gotten quite quick enough to block a particular attack from one of her classmates. All that plus we had a short week, and she went to school one day.
Aesop Literature pocket about the Fox and the Goat including making a story strip, went to pottery for two hours with her sister (she really wants to be old enough to use the wheel), went to ballet, did math one day, and listened to more Beatrix Potter stories. She still needs to do her Japanese.
I'm glad we took the time during the week to enjoy them and each other.
