Interesting article here. I spent so much time studying this in college and beyond. I may have to revisit a few favorite text books tonight. It's such a fascinating and tragic story.
I'm not whining, I promise I'm not, but by way of explanation (as I feel particularly boring lately) my mouth still hurts and it's zapping my energy and spark. I saw the dentist yesterday and he can do nothing to speed my recovery. I am feeling awfully sad for those people who are in constant, nagging pain from any number of conditions. My pain is harmless and will pass soon enough.
We are wrapping up our lessons for the year. I'm planning a rather artsy summer term. The museum has bios of all the artists featured in the summer exhibit on the website. There is an outdoor concert series that we hope to attend. We've started a poetry journal where Lucy is to copy her favorite poems in her very best handwriting. This will be such a treasure when she is older. And if I can convince myself to place that Amazon order, we'll be working on botanical illustrations. We finished up The Sorcerer's Stone. I had my reservations about reading this to Lucy, but she had seen the movie years ago. It also provided so many Greek myth tie-ins that it made for a great unit study of sorts. I'm pre-reading Prince Caspian right now, in hopes of reading it in time for the movie release. The movie looks a bit romantic in parts - we'll see. My husband has promised to take over science for the summer. Our summer camping trip provides an ideal opportunity for star gazing. It would be nice to know what I'll looking at (a lollipop, perhaps? :))
Hope all is well with my internet friends - Happy Wednesday.
