This afternoon we watched four deer which ate the crab apples in our neighbor's yard. One was a young buck!
Charlotte continued studying trees. We used two German books today: Was gibt es im Wald? and Der Baum. Charlotte then started to draw a big tree, but she hasn't really gotten very far.
Jonathan studied the fight between the Horatii and the Curatii. He also started a picture about the part where Horatius' sister begs him not to fight the Curatii.
Miriam studied some more weather sayings. Next week, we'll move to a new block of main lessons. She also read in a Curious George collection after I had read one of the stories to Veronika.
Veronika caught the bird fever (like her big brother). She drew a golden eagle.
Flora helped in the kitchen washing turnip greens.
Tomorrow will be Veronika's first day of ballet. We got out her ballet clothes and adjusted the elastics on her ballet shoes (they've been worn by her two older sisters already). She's very excited.
Heute nachmittag haben wir Rehe und einen jungen Hirsch beobachtet, die die Holzäpfel von unseren Nachbarn gefressen haben.
Veronika hat das Vogelfieber von Jonathan bekommen. Sie hat einen Steinadler gemalt.
