Shakespeare: Midsummer Night's Dream
"With sweet muskroses, and with eglantine..."

We have gotten into a new rhythm, which now includes taking Katie to her college classes. I take one of the younger boys with me and we do our schoolwork in the cafeteria of the college. We have particularly been enjoying our Shakespeare studies. We read about Lysander and Hermia cooking up the plan to meet in the woods while the workmen are cooking up the plan to put on a play for the duke. Quentin is memorizing passages.

The weather has been crazy; hot one day and chilly the next. One storm dropped walnut-sized hail. 
On one of Steven's and Midas' trips to the beach, they saw a snake on the sand...
 ...and on another they saw a tall ship.
Quentin has been cooking yummy and healthy food for us.
We have been preparing for my older boys' graduation, which will take place in our backyard. You can find the tutorial about the backyard lights pole buckets here.

How has your week been?


  1. You all are up to lots of life. Those hail stones are huge. I can't wait to hear about your graduation party.
    Blessings, Dawn
