Supper: Chili with Joy-of-cooking sourdough cornbread on top. Mmm…!
And how’s this for homeschool math play? This is actually taken straight out of the family math curriculum. We did this once before, only with barley… this time around, I just bought whatever was cheapest. And as long as it doesn’t fall on the floor, it should still be good to make soup out of when they’re done!
Pouring, measuring, estimating… these are all amazing concepts that kids learn just by being given the freedom to play around. Too tired right now to pontificate; visit my other post for more rave about the Family Math program.
And finally, before I collapse for the night: my sad, sad beloved banana tree!
Here it is, indoors at last as of last night, but perhaps too late to save it. Some of the stems seem very, very droopy. And there isn’t much light indoors here. We’ll see what happens over the next few weeks…
Banana update! See this post to follow the sorry, sorry story of this much-loved tree.
