a little saner

Standard

Things are back on an even keel today. Tai Chi Man is back from his weekend conference, my 3 day cleanse is done (successfully), a little housework was completed, and we started on the first of our geography workbooks.

Both Lego Nut and Ninja Boy are learning with me about…North America. Today we put up the poster from the back of the book, talked about latitude and longitude and relative location and some of the countries that we’ll be covering (the book includes the central American countries within this continent). Whilst I’m not a huge fan of workbooks, they do give you a framework to work with, even if you digress on to other things. I’m glad I bought a new atlas and globe, as we used both today.

Afterwards, Ninja Boy and I went out jogging – Week 6 Day 1 of Couch to 5K. Every time, I think I’m not going to make it, but I do!

I have made sure that the calendar is free this week so I can have time for schooly stuff and fun stuff and relaxing. Tonight Ninja Boy helped me cut up tomatoes for another big pot of pasta sauce and then we had fun on the trampoline for about an hour while it got darker and the moon came up and the stars started to appear. Good times.

  1. Sounds like a lovely day. The atlas and globe will be really handy. When my oldest was young, I laminated a map of the world and whenever The Handy Husband was out travelling we plotted his trips on the map. We also put a star on each country that our relatives lived in. Ten years later she’s really good at geography and can’t wait to visit some of the countries herself!
