Hello Friends Around the Planet,
Another fantastically busy day here at Cherub. So many things to do, so little time...for real! Today we are finishing up our I and J week. We learned about what the word "invisable" means. And, we made some invisable paintings! We took white crayons, colored and drew on different colored paper. Then we used watercolors to paint over our white crayon drawings and WOW! Magic! You see the "invisable" drawing come to life!
We learned about "diner speak". I brought in a book about diner slang and read the book to the children. It's called "Frank and Ernest", two friends who run a diner while the owner goes away for a few days. Everyone got big laughs out of: "nervous pudding"=jello, "blonde with sand"=coffee with cream and sugar, *"paint a bow wow red"=hot dog with ketchup, "moo juice"=milk. We even used some of the slang during lunch today! Fun!
Our yard is progressing! The project manager told me they were able to catch up with themselves and completed 2 weeks work in one week, due to the rain last week. We are "a wishing and a hoping" for it to be completed sooner than later!
Have a great weekend and enjoy the sun while we can!
