First of all, Happy Pi Day!
I'm not sure if we'll actually get around to eating pie today or not, but perhaps so!
It is also this guy's birthday!
The Boy and I have been talking about him a lot lately, with all the news on gravitational waves fascinating both of us.
...What We've Been Up To...
Watching Downton Abbey
Reading more about the Romanovs
Catching up on a couple of episodes of Once Upon a Time
Watching the skies pour down on us daily (though there's a several day break in the rain this week!)
Working [somewhat] diligently on math, which is going well
Going through clothes, as the author of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up suggests, though, no, we aren't doing it all in one fell swoop!
Talking to the Boy about The Big History Project (with an emphasis on science) for fall, and writing a research essay for now
Looking at new volunteer opportunities for The Girl, now that she's THIRTEEN!
Cooking bake sale goods with The Girl for derby, and then watching her chat with a boy all evening while helping out at the bake sale table!
The Boy also tried a parkour class last week, as he's a little burnt out on fencing -- he loved the parkour class, and will be taking it weekly. Best of all, it is during derby practice, and only two minutes away!
I lost another 2.6 pounds
...Plans for the Week...
The beginning work on a research essay
Ordering a new spelling program for The Girl (I'm really tempted by Spelling Workout, and I think she could move through a couple of the lower books pretty quickly, though her spelling is fairly dreadful)
Looking ahead to next week, when I am off work and school for spring break
More cleaning and clothes sorting... we're getting there
I wear we will finish A Wrinkle in Time!
And there you have it. Nothing fancy, just going along.
Enjoy your Pi Day!
