I get Fridays off now! At some point I’ll rejoin my family on occasion and build in the field trips and long weekends doing stuff, but for now I’m trying to catch up on my overwhelming to-do list. I have a garden to put in and things to sew and knit. And water to haul, since I’m experimenting with growing our food with greywater from our dishwasher and baths.
Seamus just started a third-grade language arts curriculum, and I’m retooling our history work to better incorporate the myths and folktales that come from the periods we study. We’re doing this so we can go back math and bolster some of his mental math skills. We’re three weeks into our intensive review work, and we’ll keep going through the end of the school year in early September. In addition to the extra addition, we’re continuing with our regular math program, so he’s staying engaged.
Tristan is learning to swim, and knows how to use the potty, but is working through his control issues about the potty. We’ll get there. He is very much in love with vehicles, more so than Seamus at this age.
Patrick’s new work is…working! His new shows are attracting sponsors, and he has a writing gig. So we’re not ready to apply for jobs at Costco yet.
