Well, I guess it's time to get on with our normal life...so long as we don't look out the window at all the stuff in the driveway and yard!
We resumed our lessons today and it went very well. While I am pleased with Sonlight overall, it was a rocky beginning talking about the cave people and such in The Usborne Children's Encyclopedia. Today, however, it was very interesting as we talked about ancient Egypt. I also came across this great website for kids on Egypt-- we had lots of fun with the hieroglyphics name converter at the bottom of the site. The boys thought it was quite silly for the children to run around naked when it was hot-- something they didn't want to do since others would make fun of them. And also thought it was icky for the women AND men to wear make-up...they did, however, long to sleep on the roof of the house whenever it's hot! I think they'll remember at least a little bit of this for quite a while.
