Learning from My Children

Two weeks with some of the young adults at home? Highly educational.

Lots of C.S. Lewis reading and discussion. 

Two Shakespearean tragedies (so far) read aloud. Daisy elbows everyone aside to get the good parts for her own. "I just like to read out loud!" 

We've all gone to see Frozen.

Felix has brought us up to date on styrofoam substitutes made from mushrooms, and taught us how to make intelligent comments in art museums: just use the words "juxtaposition" and "dynamic composition."

And we all learned how to pronounce 'Taliesin', who was of course King Arthur's bard.

Sounds like so much fun! I've relearned chess with the boys and played a roysing game of monopoly in which my senior graduating) son cleared the board with stategy. I've also had a roughhouse explained in physics terms. The force of one child pushing one over... lol
Good times!

Anna said...

Yes, that's Tally-ESS-en.

I would like to be a fly on the wall during these treats.
