Due to his back issues, the hubs has been sleeping on a mattress, on the floor at night, I thought all the extra sleep would improve his mood, but, alas, I was mistaken.
Little man’s science test went well. He remembered a whole lot more than I thought he would. After 3 temper issues over writing essays yesterday, he woke up in a decent mood. We are finishing ‘Letters from Yosemite’ on Thursday. I’m not sure how much of the story is retained in his brain. He did do the outline, rough draft & final copy of the essays.
Social Studies has us moving on to transportation & state history is continuing with Colonial days. I’m displeased with the art lessons. I let the admin know, too. I won’t teach about sculptures of gods & goddesses. Instead, I found some great fall crafts that we’re going to do. There’s just no point to the art lessons they’re giving. Plus, we will not speak of the occult background in some of this ‘art’. I don’t care how old or pretty they think they are.
When he chose his silent reading book, I saw it was 12 chapters. I didn’t realize how long those 12 were. Geez! They are adult sized chapters. Needless to say, 2 days in and we’re at chapter 3. Amazon had several good free ones listed yesterday. I snagged those up. Hopefully, they are a little lighter than this one. I don’t want him to get discouraged.
Best question of the day: Why did they name Yosemite National Park after Yosemite Sam?
