Homeschool day 42 of 180
Government school day 34 of 175Â½
Kelly and I spent yesterday evening together designing t-shirts. Lorena and Christian went to cubscouts, so we had the house to ourselves. Tios Jorge and Lauro are planning to bring Tia Mary and Primos Jorgito, Valeria, and Dayanita to Oregon for the holidays in December. We are trying to talk Tia Dayana into bringing Primo Laurito, too. Kelly and I decided that it would be good to design some t-shirts to give them as souvenirs. Kelly drew up a big picture of all the cousins in a group along with Grandpa Lauro to go on the back. I did the little logo on the front. It was really fun. We need to refine our designs a little more, then print them out and iron them onto the shirts. It was a LOT of fun. One of my favorite things in all the world is to sit down with one or both of the kids to do an art project. We absolutely love our summer Mark Kistler’s Draw Squad drawing sessions. We have at least one more summer of that before we will need to go on to something new. I think it would be good to continue on with pencil drawings. That is something that is almost always available.
I am getting very encouraged with Lorena’s calculus class. Lorena did well on her first test. When she gets through with this class, she will have all of the math out of the way for degrees ranging from pharmacy to microbiology to chemistry. She has been working very hard and really deserves a prize.
