Not keeping up

Ok, so I haven’t been very good about updating lately. It probably has to do with the fact that it’s my favorite time of year, so we’re outside doing stuff a lot of the time. It’s no longer hot enough to melt the soles of your shoes on the sidewalk, so we can be outside for longer than five minutes at a stretch. We’re working on some landscaping that needs to be finished before winter and spending a lot of time with our friends and family. School has taken a bit of a back burner to real life stuff. We’re still plugging along and all, our hearts just aren’t as into it at the moment, so it’s more of a “let’s get this stuff out of the way so we can hang out and play” type of deal. But, I think we are at a place to move past that now and really get back into our studies.

Over the summer our library hosted a two-person theater production. The play was about Sherlock Holmes. All of the girls loved the play, and Bubba decided that she’d like to hear more stories about him. I have a small book with three Sherlock Holmes stories in it. I was concerned that she wouldn’t find it as riveting as the wonderful play that we saw, and I was right. It’s a little bit old-fashioned and isn’t paced the way modern stories are. She’s following it, but not really engaged. She doesn’t ask to read more of it every day like she does with other books. So, we may just shelve that and move on to something else. I think we’ll start a Halloween unit. She’s incredibly excited about the holiday and our first annual costume party. I think we can come up with all kinds of fun seasonal tie-ins for that.
