Meg loves these rays of sun between the clouds---she says it's a soul going up to heaven. Did you know that they are called Crepuscular Rays?
This is just a little video of Meg practicing her poem, George Washington by Stephen Vincent Benet. I love how she can't be still while she does it, but has to be dramatic.
Here she is in a quieter moment, though her bright clothes are making a lot of noise with hot pink pants and fluorescent yellow shirt! She's following along in her script while the other homeschoolers rehearse their fall play.
We go play trivia at Starbucks almost every week, and all kinds of silliness occurs during the breaks between questions. You can tell how badly we are doing by the zaniness of the kids! When we're doing well, there is, usually, quiet intensity while we all try to figure out the answers. If the adults are clueless, then you can expect the kids to be pretty silly while they entertain themselves.
We are the proud parents of a Life Scout. He's just one giant step away from being an Eagle Scout!
I found someone local, at a huge antique mall (I could stay there for hours!), who sells Annie Sloan Chalk paint. So I have purchased several colors, and am in the midst of painting practically anything that stands still (and is boring or depressing). Like my kitchen island. It's really hard to get a good picture of it with an accurate color. I don't think it looks as yellow as the swatch on the website, but the color is Versaille. You can see however, that it's not white anymore!
It was kind of fun, kind of scary to do. Now that the wax has dried, I'm happy with it, though I think I'll buff it a bit to shine it up. There are more details to come on Annie Sloan adventures!
