1 Jun 2018 – And The Boys
Tue: after cleaning out the covered back porch&deck, had the luxury for a cuppa with time&imagination on my side while all the kids are at school and their parents at work. A mini zip-line (imagination) from the tree-house (already in existence) to a gazebo (dream!) with the grounds covered by these wild flowers (just only a couple of plants for real but my thoughts can go wild!) is on my mind – hahaha!!
#6 must be having a blast, never knew that one could rent a tree-house – what fun! Tkx May for the pix and info about this and for giving me such wonderful ideas to daydream!
A tree house, a free house,
A secret you and me house,
A high up in the leafy branches
Cozy as can be house – S. Silverstein
What a clever way to learn fractions for #4,5&6 (presumably #1,2&3 already knows them!). especially when these Lego pieces can be found abundantly in both the Norway&USA household! Perhaps math would have been more interesting to me if this way of learning was offered then.
Wed: a day to clean&clear the art-room, as referred to by the household here. There is this shoe-box where I placed all the crayons in 2016, was reinforced in 2017 and now in 2018, double reinforced – let’s see if it will last till 2019? Cleaning&clearing here is more rewarding as you see results, unlike in my 4-walls which has only 1person under 1roof – a completely different ball-game from 5purple&2orange generations+dog and now+a grandmom with 3generations under 1roof.
Thu: Haley, our next door neighbour made a comment on FB: I would have never imagined that I’d be cuddling BOTH a hamster and a bearded dragon on the couch while my pup and cat jealously watch! Will still stay upstairs away from animals, reptiles, rodents as long as I can help it – as it is there is a rodent, Choco in the boys’ room and I hear it at night!!! One of the frogs, Hopster (grey) is still alive and has grown, but not big enough for a frog-leg dish!!!! Zuno is about the only animal I can handle now that he knows what I expect of him after a week+of disciplining with consistency.
Edited: seeming Choco can be active in the daytime when he (was just informed that it is a he) is placed inside this plastic-ball. No matter how cute everyone may think he is, will still stay away from him!!
Last day of May 2018 and the feeling of helplessness prevails. #3 Boy Scouts Awards and was annoyed with myself for not getting decent pix but here they are and he does look smart in his uniform with the troop.
