scratch art and 3D Human Body book and CD-ROM
I love our little hometown local library. They are happy to waive the limit on the amount of materials checked out because, "well, they're homeschoolers", and goodness knows they see us in there often enough. We went home today with armloads of books, audio books, DVDs, and CD-ROM games, including a 3D Human Body game and a Diet Analysis + computer program, both inspired by Camille watching old seasons of The Biggest Loser on Netflix. Camille has become super interested in nutrition, exercise, anatomy, and physiology lately.
We're busy in lots of little ways these last two days. Camille auditioned for another play at the local community theater and got a part! She talked her Papa into auditioning, too, and he also got a part! He is Papa in Papa's Angels and Camille is Ada, a school girl. So, they've been off at rehearsal in the evenings and what a great bonding experience for them. They were also invited to play music together during intermission at the dinner theater, and singing on stage is Camille's passion even more than acting!
Sylvia and Ayla are both always on the go, climbing, riding, playing, jumping, exclaiming, spinning, dancing, digging, and gathering. So, life is busy here. Full. Whether we're out adventuring or 'just' hanging about, it never feels dull. Which is excellent all around, except that it's also a bit exhausting lately. I suppose I'd rather be well-rounded and engaged than well-rested and bored.
