We did go through with the trip to a science museum, as I had mentioned here (In the School Front), and that should merit a separate post. We went with another homeschooling family, and had the happy opportunity to catch up with each other and plan our next trips!
I should just briefly mention here, though, that I was pleasantly surprised with Second Daughter's emerging teacher skills. I was insisting that Youngest Daughter, who is 11, and her 8-year old cousin, go through each and every exhibit and read all explanations down to the last period. Second Daughter took me aside and reminded me gently that we could do that on the next visit. "Let's just work on appreciation and enjoyment on this first visit," my sage advised. And so we did.
Around the House
I just had the house professionally cleaned and renovated by a top designer. It is immaculate, spic and span, and definitely picture perfect. A house design magazine has just asked permission to feature our house in their next issue.
JUST KIDDING :-)
In the Kitchen
It just occurred to me that this Lent, I should add at least one fish/ seafood dish to my miserably modest kitchen repertoire. I don't want to be ambitious, that's for sure. The kitchen is not a place where I shine.
