I'm sorry for my grumpiness today. It turned out I was getting a [minor] migraine when I wrote that. I left work, came home, downed some medication and slept for an hour. The headache is still there, flirting around the edges of my mind, but is SO much more manageable. After I woke up, I ate a big sandwich, and felt better.
Then we got the mail. And The Boy got this:
A gold medal, and the Athena Award of Excellence for his participation in the National Mythology Exam! Last year he got a silver medal, so he was super excited when he opened the envelope this time and saw that gold peeking out!
Now we're watching Cosmos, which will be followed up with some reading, math, and perhaps poetry.
