It's been a looooong day.

and I'm tired so this is going to be short and to the point.

Kung Fu continues to have an attitude...maybe he thinks one day he'll wake up and I'll miraculously care that he doesn't want to write paragraphs? I can assure you that's not going to happen. In the mean time he's plugging right along and at least it's a topic he's interested in...The Civil War.

We had fun doing History today. I got out the big timeline and they found Columbus and King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella....
We made two more mini books for our end of the unit project....
It's so interesting to learn about the fates of the explorers.....so far none of them has died peacefully in their beds.

They also made travel brochures to 'the new land' ......Stuffie chose Florida
she's trying to lure me there with sandy beaches, jumping dolphins and scaly fish....she's not going to trick me.


And Kung Fu chose Newfoundland.....
They have great fishing and lots of trees....I'm not being tricked into going there either....

They are still studying the same painting...today they had the draw their own versions....
Stuffie did the one with the flag....I love the faces and all the emotion they convey. I like how Kung Fu drew the hill around the people and of course the guy shooting the gun is awesome!

We didn't get to the State Study or Naya Nuki today.....we spent too much time making brochures and looking at the timeline.....
tomorrow he's got some instructing to do in the morning so I'm sure we'll get even more behind....
makes me glad WP doesn't schedule Friday's
