the quotidian (9.16.13)

Quotidian: daily, usual or customary;
everyday; ordinary; commonplace

Nispero fruit: sweet, juicy, tangy.

Getting dirty: it's his special talent.

Farewell to the language tutor. 
She did a great job, and the children enjoyed the classes, 
but they were happy to be done.

A requisite thank you note.

A school project: making something out of soap.

She's grown a wee-bit, eh?

This is not some creative punishment on my part. 
They willing tied themselves together and then tried to eat oranges.

Soggy Soccer.

  1. Lovely Spanish note, written well. Very satisfying I hope!

    1. He dictated it to me and then copied it. But his handwriting has gotten a LOT better this year, thanks to all the copying they do in school. And yes, it was satisfying to hear what he came up with!

  2. When do you return? And will you be homeschooling again when you get back?

  3. Ohhhh - your nispero fruit are what I know as loquats! They grow like weeds for us in southern CA. My husband adores them.
