We have had the flying ants swarming for the last week, coming in through the eaves and into the upstairs bathrooms through the vents. The ant traps have not quite done their work yet. This morning I was reading in bed at 5:30 or so, and an ant crawled across the lit-up screen of my Kindle. It was a rude awakening. My scalp has been itching ever since!
On Saturday we had the Latin Olympika at school; it was a Cedar Tree sweep once again. I feel a little guilty, having such highly competitive students. But I sure didn't make them that way, I just teach them. Everyone seemed to have fun, and I think my students were all well-behaved. In other Latin news, today I posted a new lesson on my unofficial Duolingo course. I have been making a Memrise course to go with it, and now another user has taken it on to enter the sentences from my course as well, So... if you always wanted to learn Latin and want to give it a try in a fun and non-threatening setting, here's your chance. It's nowhere near as engaging and interactive as a true Duolingo course would be, but I pride myself that it's the next best thing. I have been posting these for nearly a year now.
Both boys will be having their spring breaks in the near future, unfortunately not overlapping by much; and then the rest of us have ours, although we have no plans for world travel.
