  1. Waxing nostalgic tonight. Ran across these: https://www.bfbooks.com/Geography-Through-Literature-Pack-PB Such a fun year that was--did it with several kids. We did Tree in the Trail first so dh could take the kids on the Santa Fe Trail in the fall.
  2. Bones are boiled. We will be able to see the matrix, though not as clearly as in a photograph. Found the fish poster! And found more WILD Colorado biomes posters, so I'll put up a new one tomorrow, with the fish poster after the little guys look at it. Found another Egyptian book--man, I have a lot of those!
  3. Funny how this came up today--I'm boiling up elk bones for the kids at LEAD to see tomorrow.
  4. Dh got the bone sawed. I was hoping he wouldn't do it in pieces, but he did. I'm boiling them now, in the hope that we can see the matrix. Dinner's done, dishes done and put away. Well, except for the bones! Dropped off stuff to the church for tomorrow. I hate having piles to bring in in the morning Forgot to check on the purchase order for tape and glue Sent email to Eagle candidate.

  8. We did our India maps, heard another tale of Gilgamesh, colored a statue of Mohenjo-Daro, made out paper skin models, looked at cheek smears under the microscope, made our own, started Little Britches, and a bunch of other stuff. And I've found out, after all my eye surgeries, I can no longer use a microscope! I can't get it to focus! Picked up a huge elk bone for dh to saw in half to show the kids the structure Dropped off horse hair to the lady who makes the jewelry Talked to a lady who used to live here and hs. They moved to DC and are talking about moving back. I had to be h
