This was my day, especially with Runner who moves at this speed so often that he is sometime called "dark' by the adult annoyed with trying to get him to get a task done. I was very frustrated with this today. It seemed that the whole world was moving at half my speed. It must have been somewhat in my head cuz we finished school at a reasonable time today. we did start late but LA and Canadian History were rolled into one today and will be for the next while.
I have decided that we are wrapping up Egypt this week. We will still have our mummy chicken to work on but otherwise done. We will take a one week break from ancient history and focus on art. For us art is often History. It is also traditionally studies, so I think this will mean additional traditional studies and will be the kids choice. I know the boys want to build a big powwow drum and have received permission from the Women to do so but I think it will be an after we buy our house thing. Getting the hide is going to be costly. It's not like I can head out to the 401 and hunt me down a buffalo or an elk. They just are not wandering these parts. It will be interesting to see what they choose as opposed to what I choose so I will promise to blog it next week.
Oh how I wandered off course...
yeah so it turns out Runner was procrastinating (today) cuz he was coming down with a fever. You get so upset and then reminded to take time to breathe. So next week, patience from me and my kids choose their own art project...which will also be a practical lesson in consensus.
