Day in the life {Thursday}


Daniel 3 – 28 Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! They trusted in him and defied the king’s command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God. 29 Therefore I decree that the people of any nation or language who say anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego be cut into pieces and their houses be turned into piles of rubble, for no other god can save in this way.”

Grace got a head start on school today because she wanted to try her hand at making macarons. She did an English test worked on polygons and symmetry for Geometry, started on her Agri-Science slide show on farming (where she found some cool facts like – 1830 About 250-300 labor-hours required to produce 100 bushels 5 acres of wheat with walking plow, brush harrow, hand broadcast of seed, sickle, and flail, 1834 McCormick reaper patented; John Lane manufactures plows faced with steel saw blades, 1884-90 Horse-drawn combine used in Pacific coast wheat areas, 1888 The first long haul shipment of a refrigerated freight car was made from California to New York, 1890-95 Cream separators come into wide use.) Physical Science was reading and gathering information for a lab involving paper airplanes. Hannah had a story to read, some Science to read and I don’t think she did math. Our read aloud biography was supposed to happen on Tuesday, but I forgot, so we did it today.

Right now we’re reading the bio of Helen Keller.

After lunch Grace started on her macarons while Hannah and I went to Chatfield to swim – we had the beach to ourselves.

We came back, cleaned up and went to the library for the Doodle-bot program. It was kind of hard to make the bots draw, the marker had to be in just the right place, it was a lot easier to make a bot that rolled around the table and bumped into other bots.

We had breakfast for dinner (instead of fish), dropped Grace at youth group and started watching Passengers.
