We spent the weekend just being a family as much as we could. K is very much into the old tv mini-series The Winds of War right now. She has hundreds of questions about WW II. We’re actually moving onto the final chapters of that series War and Remembrance. It’s quite in-depth with the concentration camps right now. I told her how The Man and I went to Dachau while we were stationed in Germany. She can’t wait until we discuss WW II later this school year. She wants to know all about F.D.R. and Pearl Harbor. Her grandpa tells her alot about rationing and being a kid during that time.
Kiddo is also busy reading. She has to read a certain number of points by the end of this grading period. She’s not even close right now!! Shame on her!!
While all this is going on, I’m typing up menus for her. Now that she has her real cash register, she wants all her restaurants operational!! It’s been challenging to make them all different. She’s having a blast with it though. I’m almost done with them. Of course, she’s got some ideas for new eateries too. I told her “we’ll see” on that!! Her book is getting thick and she’s got lots of choices now. I’m sure she’ll be posting soon to tell you all about it!!
My creative juices just aren’t flowing for making games right now. Nothing is coming to me. I’ve even asked for requests hoping that would trigger something. No takers though. I like the topics this month, just no ideas to put on paper. Maybe the menus have stolen all my creative power!! HAHA I’m sure it’ll come back….one day!!
For now, I’m off!! I have a social studies test over Lewis & Clark to prepare. I also need to organize some science material. We’re also starting a batch of Amish Friendship Bread tomorrow for “life skills”. She gets to do all the measuring, dissolving of yeast and mixing. She gets to work the batter all week and decide if she wants original or another “flavor” to bake up!! MMMM I can taste it now!!
