DS10 is digging thistles out of the lawn. After the first 10, I'm doing to pay a tiny bit per thistle he digs. Maybe $0.25 each.
DS10 and I stopped at the BIG library in the nearest large city yesterday. He geeked out and brought home a huge stack of schooly books. Trigonometry for Dummies. The History of Pi. Algebra 2 for Dummies. Organic Chemistry for Dummies. Thank goodness for good books and good libraries - I wouldn't know what to do with this kid otherwise!
We went to a live taping of a favorite public radio show last night (hence the big library out of town). DS10 brought a Sherlock Holmes book to read while we waited. The man sitting next to him asked what he was reading and they hit off a conversation. So proud of DS10 for impeccable chit chat.
DS2 is obsessed with everything outdoors! Today he figured out how to put his barn boots on independently! He has been toddling along with barn chores. He likes to watch the little chicks and pick eggs.
He has mostly given up on naps, so I've replaced nap time with "movies". He has been watching PBS Nature shows about birds. Today was about ducks. Yesterday snowy owls. Day before was hummingbirds - he didn't care much for them. His favorite show is "Jungle Eagle".
DN13 is spazzing about driving an hour to get her another Chinese hamster, which I am NOT doing today. And so currently she's pretending to sulk but I know she's watching YouTube videos and I hear her giggle occasionally in the other room with the door shut so the guilt trip has more potential effect. A smart one, but she doesn't realize I'm smarter She so manipulative lol
