2. Baby goats: growing like weeds. All of them are chowing down pellets like they were fine Belgium chocolate - and hay like it was manna. :lol: Even baby Chell is scarfing it down - which is good. They're down to 2 bottles a day....I want to cut them back again, but I don't think Chell is ready - I think she needs a bit more milk. The bucklings...no, but I can't see how to wean them when the doelings are still getting bottles. Must think on this.....
3. School: still noodling around with the routine. Right now, the box isn't working.....I'm not sure if it's because it's NEW!, or if it's just not "right"...I'll give it more time. I didn't like the almost total hands-off thing...so we're back to me reading Latin, Hebrew, and the other combined classes; Latin, I wasn't sure if they were *getting* it, without asking them to translate out loud during the readings. We were back to the old way today, and it went much better. *I* need to read the History lesson(s)...I've caught up on Geography and Science. :lol:
3a. The kids are watching "Sherlock Holmes", the first one with Robert Downey Jr. LOVE it...but I'm upping the ante - they will read one of Doyle's Sherlock stories when this is finished, and we'll compare characters. :snicker: Discuss if *this* interpretation is "correct", right, or totally off-base, and discuss how plots compare.
4. Weather: We've gotten NO rain since we put the pool up. It's like we have an umbrella over us again....weirdness. Massive thunder-boomers all around us, even hail, but we? Get nothing.
We went for a walk this morning, and took Snips. She loved it, but is now passed out by the sofa. Little lard-butt needed it...as did I. :lol:
