day 1 …


Happy New Year’s Day ! =) It is snowy outside our den, and I am glad to report we are happy and warm.  The Historian began 7th grade today !!!! She worked hard; ops norm, and is currently in her bedroom playing with her lego set… thanks Grandpa and Meme! She has really enjoyed the year thus far, she told me over a hot rice casserole for lunch. =) Yes, all 15 hours of it. =) She has this infectious happiness that you can’t ignore, and true to form; she has been in high spirits all day. She is continuing with her maths program, is studying the Crusades in history and is working thru unit 2 in Latin. We discussed technological advances made possible with better materials and stronger math skills during the Crusades and new trade routes that made getting a wider variety of fruits and veggies possible for the first time in parts of Europe… hence better than normal health and lifespan. She began “Of Mice and Men” today, much to her delight. She is a fan of dear Mr. Steinbeck and hopes to read his entire catalog of works in the next few years. We have much Chemistry and Biology planned for the long winter days and lots of writing and other necessities. She is most excited about a unit about Roman culture which will complement her Latin studies quite nicely. =)

For dinner, my foxling has requested a favorite of hers… breakfast foods ! I am making purple potatoes with onion and garlic, shirred eggs and cucumbers and apples. An easy meal, with minimal clean up. I owe a letter or 2 to friends and will be working on them tonight, while she draws and The Professor plans out his semester. Quiet togetherness and a bit of jazz… just what the DR ordered. I hope you all are ushering in the best year of your lives, and you have a peaceful night.
