Faeries, Pi and Weekend Fun!

So, I mentioned in my last post that Goose is performing in our charter school's performance of
Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.  And, on top of lots of other writing
assignments, all the kids were required to turn in some sort of project relating to
Shakespeare or this particular play.
And since Goose is playing the faerie,  Peaseblossom, she chose faeries as her
subject.  I am in love with this project!!! 

She studied the history of faeries and made this beautiful display,
complete with real faeries!  She used battery-operated tea lights with cotton over them to make
them glow.  I also love the faerie door at the base of the tree.  I am so proud of her!  She did it completely on her own.  She is also very proud of herself! 

Of course, we had to make pie on pi day!
Apple pie, as requested by Binky.  We also listened to some very funny youtube
songs about pi.  Binky and I also drew some circles, measured the diameter, radius and
found pi! And we finished the pie the next morning for breakfast.

Today was beautiful!
We all hopped in the car, with Cody the dog, and headed to the bay.
The water was warm and very shallow.
Cody loved it!

Is that a happy dog face, or what?

Daddy, Goose, Binky and Cody had a great time playing
Frisbee in the water.
While I was watching them playing, I thought to myself,
"This is our moment."  It was a wonderful feeling, living in that moment!
We played, laughed, snacked, ran, played catch later with a friend at the park.
Goose and Binky didn't argue once all day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was the perfect day. 
Now back to the week ahead.

  1. I love the fairy project - it's beautiful!

    Happy belated Pi Day. We didn't do anything special for it, but I did have beef and ale pie at the pub for dinner. Does that count?

    What gorgeous weather. I'm glad all of you enjoyed it. :)
