As I come to the end of another "school" year, I'm amazed at how much Mac has grown-up. Something has changed; my little girl is not little anymore. I'm busy gathering our curriculum for the fall with high school breathing down my neck. She wants to go... do I let her? Fi is in her own world, growing fast too, but thankfully still lost in little girl things, her animals, nature, rocks, and now bks. She loves to read and is reading me out of house and home. Planning for her is so much easier, yet I love the challenge that teaching Mac brings as we move away from the basics towards the grey, the more abstract. I still have at least one good year before I will need to decide. I just wish I had more time.

Living in the now...

I wish I could be more like my dog. She lives for now, not yesterday, nor tomorrow but now. She does not fret over bills, her health, world politics, or even the weather. She just is.

Not fine but fun art Friday

Lisa asked me to post some more of my silver and copper project. I firmly believe you are never to old to learn a new trade, take up a new hobby, or find joy in just trying something you never thought you would.

I saw this on Lisa's page and thought I would give the test a try.. not surprised at the result, as I own a couple pairs.

You Are Clogs

You are a solid and down to earth person.

You seek – and almost always achieve – a really sound balance in your life.

You are stylish yet comfortable. Mellow but driven. Excited yet calm.

You are the perfect mesh of contradictions.

No matter what happens, you have the ability to stay well grounded in your life.

People know that they can truly depend on you.

You should live: In Europe

You should work: At a company dedicated to helping the world

My World Science

Fi is enjoying My World Science so much this year. She took a break for a while to complete her sister's Plato's CyberEd Earth Science course. Yes, a seven year-old did indeed finish and test well using a middle school curriculum. This kid loves science! Anyway, I had hoped we could finish this last unit about the Ocean and Coral Reefs at the beach, but it was just not in the cards. Maybe next year. So, next best thing, she made her own small section of the beach. I will miss this time when she, like her sister, grows weary of subject related crafts, or maybe I will be lucky and she won't.
