Lovely, lovely spring day. 8 year old boy asks if we can do spelling and math outside. Sure. Joined later by 11 year old girl doing Analytical Grammar. She's working on an assignment that involves paraphrasing a passage from Ferdinand. She begins reading it aloud, and boy assumes a bull-like stance, paws the ground, sits, and starts miming flower-smelling.

Very sweet. I was the mean mom today who wouldn't let my dc do their work on the porch. Unlike your dc, mine would have wandered off--like Ferdinand, to sniff the flowers--and forgotten all about their assignments.

Oh, 8 year old would have if he'd been on his own, but we use Sequential Spelling, which means I needed to be out there with him. ;)
