Tertia had a field trip to the pumpkin patch today, and wore ordinary school clothes. She also participated in an assembly where her dance class entertained the rest of the school with a rendition of "Thriller." She came home with green stripes painted on her cheeks, and a small pumpkin in her backpack. Because she goes to public school, she is the only one in our family who knows the dance moves for "Thriller" and the Macarena. Seriously, she should get some kind of special recognition for this.
All the festivities at school meant no Latin classes today, but I had so many errands to run after a week of parent-teacher conferences and heavy grading that I didn't really get any time off and the house is still a wreck. I did pick up the Megaquilter from the dealership but I haven't had time to test it out yet. I'm a bit nervous about whether I can get it back up and running on the frame.
There is SO MUCH Latin teacher work to do still! I have my pretests graded, but Finals to edit and print out still for next week and the specter of much more grading and lesson planning in the near future. So in honor of Reformation Day, I will sign off with all my sayings for the week:
Sola Scriptura/ Sola Gratia/ Sola Fide/ Soli Deo Gloria/ Solo Christo
Cujus regio, ejus religio
Post tenebras, lux.
