I mentioned yesterday that I was a little behind in blogging the blogging stuff in my head, so this morning I'm just going to jump and play catch up.
First up...the angry Egyptian.
There are different feast and celebrations that various classes do each year at Trinitas to wrap up a particular area of study. Second grade had Egyptian Day last week, complete with authentic Egyptian food (I made homemade barley bread :-) basket weaving, writing their names in hieroglyphics and mummy masks. They end the day with a small play that tells the story of Moses and the children of Israel.
I convinced Abby that if she could channel a disco Egyptian with all that sparkely headband, bracelet and belt then it would probably be okay for her to smile in the picture.
She complied...sort of.
I know they all had a great time but I'm really looking forward to her next big event...prairie day! They've started reading the series by Laura Ingalls Wilder and in a few weeks the whole day will be spent enjoying life the way it happened on the frontier. The boys will work a garden and chop wood, the girls will make butter and piece together mini quilts. I can't wait!
