General Update

JUDAISM WEEK: Tree planted! Jackson helped out by inspecting a worm we found and pouring water on it using the cup from his water table. Photo of tree to come. Library trip cancelled on account of Obama traffic. We'll plant carrot seeds instead. Meanwhile. Jackson seemed to be trying to repeat the words Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur in his baby mushmouth dialect. So cute.

CLASSICAL READALOUD CYCLE: I was finally struck by lightning tonight and realized I need to stop reading direct from the text of D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths and start translating into vocabulary he understands. Interest skyrocketed instantly. He still just wants to look at the pictures, but he was alert and paying attention for the first time in a long time. I'm fairly ashamed I didn't think of this before!
