Breakfast discussion

This morning’s breakfast discussion included the meaning of the latin root “post” and the word “allude”. Linguistics is a great way to start the day.

On the farm

We took advantage of a day off to visit a nearby farm run by the Audobon Society. It was a beautiful sunny day and great to be outside.

Norby the Mixed-Up Robot

Mr. 6’s favorite books right now are the Norby books. It’s a series of books about a boy named Jeff and his robot Norby and their adventures. We’re currently reading the first in the series as our read-together book at night. Both Mr. 6 and Mr. 4 are loving it – although I have to keep Mr. 6 from telling Mr. 4 what is going to happen as I start each page!

Race for the Galaxy

When we got Race for the Galaxy for Christmas, we didn’t think it would be a family game but Mr. 6 was interested. He read the instructions (many, many times) and now plays significantly better than I do (luckily the Daddy can still beat him sometimes). He has even made his own deck of cards with rather impressive detail. He also enjoys Dominion and Pandemic (other good games). It’s been rather fun being able to play games together although Mr. 6 does have to be a bit lenient when Mr. 4 plays with us. He hasn’t read the rules and really just wants to have New Sparta and hand out bonus points.

A new friend

After visiting the frog exhibit at the science center Mr. 4 decided that he really wanted a tadpole. So we visited the local pet store and inquired about purchasing a new friend. Unfortunately they don’t sell tadpoles – however, one had snuck in with the minnows and we were welcome to have it! Our free tadpole needed a home so we ended up buying an aquarium (not quite free) and some goldfish food for him. He’s now living in the boys room and we’re learning about taking care of tadpoles. Hopefully we’ll have a frog before too long.

Mr. 4 named him – Tadpole of course. Tad for short.

Crosspoint

We were sitting in the living room yesterday after dinner last night chatting with friends and the boys disappeared. A bit later I wandered into the kitchen to find them sitting on stools practicing for their show. Their dialogue seemed to depend on Ethan asking very specific questions that could be answered yes or no of his guest, a Tron-inspired villain with schemes of world domination. This host is not afraid to take on the tough questions.
