I had ambitious plans for constructive learning with the younger two while Sal was traipsing through Korea with my parents and my sister, Aunt the Major. We were going to delve into ancient cultures, memorize the bones of the human body, catch up on Greek,... The reality of what actually happened has been quite different. Stuff just got in the way. The car had to go to the shop. We all got sick. Tiger had a birthday. (And, as I am certain you know, there is NO SCHOOL on Tiger's birthday!)
All of this, however, doesn't mean that learning didn't take place. While curled up sniffling on the couch, we watched videos of ancient American civilizations. We read books and colored in our Anatomy and Physiology coloring book. We listened to the new Mozart CD that the grandparents brought us. We looked on the internet to see exactly how Lysol works to kill cold germs, the nasty little monsters. We've just been in what one of Butterfly's favorite authors (and one of my favorite bloggers) Melissa Wiley refers to as Low Tide in our Tidal Homeschooling.
Sal and my parents are coming home today, and we have another week of Low Tide learning to look forward to while on our trip to Louisiana. After that, I'm sure the High Tide will come in. By then we'll be ready to ride the wave.
