We left the house in the morning to go to the library and to do some errands and didn't get back until the afternoon. Once we got back Katie practiced napkin folding from a book we got her from the library and Quentin played with puppets. We also played games of Dominoes and completed some math. I made a Nine Men Morris board. Then a black snake caused a lot of excitement. We are guessing that he was in the trees and came over to our drainpipe after eating a nice meal of perhaps a baby squirrel as there was a sizeable lump in one section of his body. James made a town in chalk on our front porch. James also added another page to our postcard-geography album and Katie cooked an Arkansas dinner. After dinner they went bike riding- the first time of the season. James took some pictures of the clouds. They read a book about Arkansas at bedtime.
We looked at Michelangelo's David and then made wild animal paper sculptures. We have been listening to Bach's concertos.
We finished up much of our week on Tudor England. We completed notebook pages on Elizabeth I, Shakespeare, and the explorers from England during this period, Cabot and Hudson. We made a model of the Globe Theatre and they performed little plays with it. James finished a Lego Quest. They played outside in the rain and puddles.
