Grasshopper Days 2-14-11


Grasshopper Days

For Today, February 14, 2011

Outside my window...  a Very Blustery Day.  Wind.  And rain.  And more rain.
 I am thinking...  mulling options for next year's curriculum/schooling.
I am thankful for...  all my sweeties on Valentine's Day!  And that we had no Monday melt-downs.  Hurray!
I am praying for...  fresh work to come in.  We're thankful for how busy Kerry has been since about Christmas.  But those projects are all wrapping up now...
I am wearing...  gray sweats and a blue sweater.
I am creating... nothing.  zilch.  nada.
I am going...  to make cookies for tonight.  :D
I am reading...  All Things Bright and Beautiful with the boys.
I am hoping...  the boys continue with good attitudes this week.
I am hearing...  the wind.  Very much wind.
From the learning rooms...  the stock market crash of 1929, experiments with electricity, FDR's "New Deal", multiplying fractions, the rise of Adolph Hitler, words with mono and uni, writing a story from a picture, beavers, and a special achievement by Gunnar.  (More below.)
Around the house...  a few Valentine decorations, mostly red candles.
On my mind...  trying to be frugal, not fearful.
Noticing that...  the boys need more work.  More "real" (meaningful) work.
Pondering these words...
An empty stomach is a poor political advisor.
Albert Einstein
One of my favorite things... the cards the boys pick out.  And the things they write on them.
Good grief!
A few plans for the rest of the week...  no real plans this week, beyond the ordinary.
Which is a Very Good Thing.
Here is a picture I am sharing:

This little happy face just finished his 3rd grade math, and was VERY excited to start
his 4th grade math.
Yay, Gunnar!

Yay! I love the way the kids can just work through the curriculum, at their own pace! Love it! Congratulations, Gunnar!
