Monday, Monday

* Went to the library, Evie chose cookbooks, I chose John Taylor Gatto.
* Picked tomatoes and tomatillos from our community garden plot.
* Made bouncy balls. While doing so we discussed polymers and molecules. Evie gave a brilliant explanation for why and how the balls of goo had various properties--too long to go into now but I was very impressed and I learned something. The balls were REALLY fun to play with.
* Read current issue of Faces Magazine.
* Read more of Longitude: The True Story of a Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time.
* Went rollerblading.
* Watched Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

That looks like fun! One of my friends and I have made bouncy balls before it was fun. I love Evie's hat, did you crochet it?

great activity...i will have to try it out with the boys' on the weekend or vacation day...

i believe the honeymoon is over and the daily grind of public school is tiring out the boys'...i think it is good for them to see this...but...we will have to wait and see what the future has to hold for us!
