Here comes the sun

After a wild day of thunderstorms and tornado sirens yesterday, we had a lovely, restful day at home. It felt like the first official day of summer. . . blue skies, bright sun and plenty of water! The girls have hardly been able to contain themselves since Toph put up the pool this past weekend. So after a couple of days of filtering, adjusting PH levels, and allowing the freezing hose water to warm in the sun, today was finally GO TIME. And go they did! Starling picked up right where she left off last summer, exhibiting her aquatic feats of daring and skill (and remarkable lung capacity). Chickadee, who can now touch the bottom with ease, performed water ballet, and received several unsolicited swimming pointers.

After our fun in the sun, we came inside to prepare dinner. Chickadee helped me to wash and cut the radishes that we received in this week’s CSA share, which were the most beautiful specimens I think I’ve ever seen.

Here comes the sun, and I say it’s all right.

    Isn’t summer great! I love your table with basin; you or someone who loves you must have made it, right? I have a similar basin, and a similar need in my kitchen. Hmmmm. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m also wondering if you may pick up blogging again. Yours is my favorite that I’ve read. I’d love to talk with you about how the rest of your year went and what you are doing with them now. I’m also planning on doing Christopherus or Live Ed for my daughter’s grade 1. Did you continue with both for grade 2? I’d love to hear from you! Thanks for what you’ve already shared.

    I just found your blog and LOVE your numeria stories. I was so sad when I realized you had stopped blogging. Thank you so much for sharing what you did. If you have later math blocks written out and would be willing to share them I would be very grateful. Also, if you have any letter blocks written out or can point me to online resources for them that would be great. Thanks again! I hope you are all enjoying your homeschool journey.
