School (unschool) days pass in a flurry here at home. We have been doing a good deal of math games and playing with our new abacus which I really love. I always hated math as a child but if you had given me an abacus when I was seven I may have loved it. I find something so soothing about running my fingers over the beads. . . .
Also we have been attending the Spanish mass at our parish a few time and really enjoying it. Partially because the language exposure is good for the children, and also I think because we feel so at home with Latin cultures. With my Italian I can pick up at least 50 percent of what the priest says and most of the responses are the same. Tonight we went for a full moon walk and looked at our little road all lit up by the moon and Jupiter which was right next to it. I feel like there is so much to experience, so much to learn and so little time to do it in. Angelica is good at reminding me to slow down and enjoy the process. Here is what she did with her math tiles the other day. She made this mosaic on our table.
