And it is the start of Week 6 at home. That is a very strange thing to write; at times it feels that long and at others it doesn’t seem quite that long. It feels long, but six weeks sounds crazy.
This weekend was beautiful and warm. It was also really windy. I was outside a lot on Saturday and by the time evening rolled around, my allergies were so worked up by whatever was blowing in the wind that my eyes looked like I’d gone 12 rounds in a boxing ring. It was incredibly attractive. It was also incredibly uncomfortable.
I hid inside yesterday and, thankfully, my eyes have returned to their normal shape and size. I was surprised that I had that reaction so quickly after the SNOW STORM the day before, but this is my first spring in this area of the state. I guess I will be learning as I go as far as the allergies are concerned.
Arden and I have finished up our schooling for the day. Today was relatively painless. We started a new section in Science and are learning about energy. We got to learn about an amusement park in Italy where all of the rides are powered by human effort. We decided that while it looked cool and fun, neither of us would want to work that hard to ride a roller coaster! However, if we were given the chance to go to Italy TODAY and pedal our way through a bunch of amusement park rides – we’d jump on it in a second because it would get us OUT OF THIS HOUSE!!!
We also watched a demonstration of how scientists can (through burning food with liquid oxygen and a flame) determine which foods have more calories. In case you are interested- cheese puffs have more calories than marshmallows. The more you know…
Nothing else to report on this lovely Monday. Are we there yet?
