That's the word from Princess.Today the "meter reader" came, and he asked how school was going...
she told him it's just her first week of First Grade, but it is "pretty ok and good too."
We have had the same meter reader for over ten years, they often have conversations
about movies..(Empire Strikes Back is a fave of both) and the "classics"..you know like Scooby Doo.
We have been doing our usual routine of reading, art, reading,art,cooking,
art,reading some more and doing a work sheet or two at the request of
Princess. My student loves doing school best when she can "pick" what she is to do,
so I put the baggies for the week where she can reach in and pull one out when she feels like it.
We'll see how long I can do it. We have been up to our eyeballs in canning.
Princess has gotten quite good at operating the strainer crank and fills jars with the best of them.
I am trying to teach her to operate the label maker...but the buttons are hard to manage for her..so tiny..do so many things. "This is too confusing...are you kidding me? I ma only five you know..not even six yet! " usually she throws in a "sheesh!" too. She does real well at pulling the seeds out, so I let her do that job most of the time.
This week we have done salsa,tomato juice,gravy,whole tomatoes, and marinara sauce.
You can't tell I have done anything, my kitchen is still covered in tomatoes.
I will post more when I can get my camera cord from behind my computer....I am not sure how I knocked it down there, but I can't upload my pictures without it.
