Wow! I am amazed at how quickly the week has sped by! We're not doing too badly though, in terms of accmplishing the school stuff. It's not a perfect track record, but it's not terrible either.
*We read some from Treasure Island. However, as the story progresses I'm less and less comfortable with it. I'm just not ready for telling my infant about murdering pirates and such, even if I myself an very hooked on the story. It makes me want to learn more about nautical stuff. So I think we'll be picking a new read-aloud book. I'm thinking about finding another copy of Island of the Blue Dolphins. I don't remember anything objectionable in that one.
*We colored with crayons again. This time it was thank you notes for some hand-me-down clothes and toys Monkey was given. I think the footprint art is canciled until I can get my hands on a drop cloth: the one I thought I had has been nailed to the garage wall as a vapor barrier. So no painting for us.
*Although I don't believe we have listened to Rhondo Alla Turka even once yet, we did listen to a lullabye collection CD full of very nice classical music as well as listening to public radio several times. One song they played the other day was a cool piano-oboe duet I wish I'd remembered the name of.
*We've read a bunch of his board books. I know we hit "How Do Dinosaurs Count to Ten" and "Are You My Mother," but I'd be hard-pressed to tell you which others. Ah, yes, we also did "Baby Animals of the Grasslands," a new book that Grandma bought from her Bookman at school. Also, the Monkey enjoys spending time "reading" his books by himself. And he's getting to where he eats his books so seldom that I feel pretty comfortable letting him pull out his books & look at them.
*We finished off 3 Nefi 11, and I've been naming the parts of the face in Spanish. I've gotta look up the lips (AGAIN!) and chin so I can name those too.
