written 3/12/12 – We worked on the family tree today. Maggie and Beth wrote family names on paper and cut them out. William put them on the wall with pushpins. The family tree was straight at first. We had kids, parents and grandparents. We have started to add aunts and uncles. William connected all of the names with yarn…connecting the people to their kids and parents. We need to put up pictures of the aunts, uncles and cousins. We need a bigger wall.
We went for a short walk today. It was a little chilly.
Do you have a ongoing project that you work on?
written 2/29/12 – Maggie took her rolling back pack to school today. She was very happy with it. But…she did say that it was loud and it was hard to roll in the grass. She has now started using the sidewalks.
I went to the store the other day. The stores have out their St. Patrick’s Day and Easter items. They also have their Valentines Day things on sale.
We got more pushpins so that we could update the family tree in the dining room. When we first started it, it looked cool. Now it just looks wrong. Three pictures tacked up on the wall…in a spot where three pictures without frames wouldn’t normally be. We need to add more names and pictures. Then it will start to look like a family tree.
Beth is doing a project for school. They had to pick an invention and do a PowerPoint presentation on it. She chose chewing gum. I think that Beth said that it was invented by a man who was inventing something for rubber tires. He wondered what the rubber would taste like so he put some in his mouth. He realized that if he added flavoring it would be a great product. He called his invention “Black Jack” gum. He was very adventurous with what he would eat.
What would you like invented?
