Misc.

Made out like bandits at the thrift store today: Clue (all the pieces), a National Geographic map game, Betsy Ross biography, how-to-draw cartoons book (we drew for about 2 hours afterwords), 3 movies, a basketball, a stuffed leopard, dishwasher rinse aid, a spy gadgets book and two fiction books--not bad for $13!

Evie wrote a lot of letters yesterday. We went running. We drew cartoons. We read. We played at the park with neighbors. We watched two movies, one forgettable one, the other was Apollo 13--Scott has been waiting for Evie to want to see it. We were up until 12:20--nice to have that option!

I am reading John Taylor Gatto's new book--Weapons of Mass Instruction: A Schoolteacher's Journey through the Dark World of Compulsory Schooling. I have a lot to say about it, it is swirling in my head.

We're off to our Outside the Box challenge group tomorrow. We will be building fires and trying different feats of campfire culinary daring!
