Lent 2010 Day 8 (2.25.10)

We got out and played in the snow today.  Little Brother brough me his boots, then Brother’s boots, then my boots.  Then Little Brother brough me all three jackets.  So I agreed.

A warm and toasty 27 degrees.  Snow was melting and the sun was so bright it was blinding.  Big Brother discovered how the top snow was frozen to make a “cap” and if you removed it in “plates” you would find powdery snow under it that was almost like sand it was so dry and so frozen.

I finished reading The How-To-Book of Catholic Devotionals.  Intresting, it didn’t cover everything i expected but i can honestly say I learned a lot. 

Today’s read-out-louds:

Several selections from The Random Houser Book of Poetry for Children (copyright 1983).  Including the Witches song from Macbeth.  I am not really good at reading poetry to the boys, I have got to get better at that.

My fav:

Mother doesn’t want a dog.
Mother says they smell,
And never sit when you say sit,
Or even when you yell.
And when you come home late at night
And there is ice and snow,
You have to go back out because
The dumb dog has to go.

Mother doesn’t want a dog.
Mother says they shed,
And always let the strangers in
And bark at friends instead,
And do disgraceful things on rugs,
And track mud on the floor,
And flop upon your bed at night
And snore their doggy snore.

Mother doesn’t want a dog.
She’s making a mistake.
Because, more than a dog, I think
She will not want this snake.

Judith Viorst

The Beginners Bible.  Big brother chose David and Goliath again, so we read that, then I had him choose something else – so he chose The Good Samaritan and we read to Lazarus ( 43 pages there).

Look Out Mouse LIBARY BOOK amazing art

“L” is for library. LIBARY BOOK did not like this own, W was for World Wide Web and K was like keyboard or something, we won’t read it again unless Big Brother brings it to me and it will go back next week.

The Golden Eggs.  An Easter gift from BFF … we read this 5 times, Little Brother loooves it.
