She also completed her first language arts book of the year, Life of Fred Australia. She is enjoying this high school language arts series and will continue with the next book in the series.
We enjoyed a lovely nature walk this week. We saw very busy bees, grasshoppers, butterflies, and ladybugs.
Dean and Anne started using this cookbook to make food. This neat book has very few directions and ingredients yet creates fancy treats. They are making one recipe a week. I really want to embrace easy but delightful meals with the kids this year.
Anne has wanted a pet of her own for a long time. We finally settled on a rat. She loves her new baby rat (Willow) and is busy bonding to and training her. Willow is already happily sitting on her shoulder and coming to snapping fingers for treats (within her cage). Rosie (the cat) is not at all sure about the rat ball.
Anne is totally handling her own banking now and is used to the ATM machine, banking inside the bank, and banking online.
Dean is starting one Critical Thinking Company workbook on Monday. It is time for him to get back to school, too.
