It snowed another ten or so inches yesterday and I had to abandon my minivan in the church parking lot. I’m glad Mr. Mallard’s car is four wheel drive because he was able to get the ducklings and me home safely. The mini is now home as well. We picked it up this afternoon, after a bit of bother getting it out of the parking lot (insert: switching quickly between drive and reverse to rock it out of it’s stuck position.) I am left asking myself some tough questions. Questions like, “Why in the world would someone who lives on a hill, in a place where it snows frequently and deeply, get a minivan?!” Mr. Mallard is asking similar questions.
Teal and Pintail both hit the slopes this weekend. Pintail had a knee injury and had to stay away from sports for six weeks! I’m so glad he is back in action. It’s hard for children to “take it easy.”
We began new blocks of study this morning. Teal is on to Greek Mythology and History, and Pintail is beginning another block of form drawing and fables. It was a busy school day trying to finish up a few things from our previous block and get started on the new material. Pintail’s last block was on The King of Ireland’s Son and I plan to do a book review in the near future.
I hope you had a lovely Monday.
