Esme's Minecraft school - we began building this a few weeks ago, and it was a shell outline then - today, she finished it all using the undefined space I had made - a classroom, cafeteria and bathroom (not shown). I added only the pictureson the wall- the rest is hers based on my shell (1 block on the ground with door openings) from weeks ago.
8.45a - dragon city
9.15a - outside exploration
9.30a - break
10a - klondike- I see she completed several quests, which requires reading,comprehension and logic.
11a - PE, 10x 500ft laps
11.30a - outside discovery, newt hunting
12.30p - Planet Earth: Jungles
1.30p - done
We watched the movie Interstellar. She watched some of it,but got a little bored halfway through and went to work more on her Minecraft school (above)-and grumble that she had to do it alone with only Minecraft animals for friends. *sigh*... Then after that was done to her satisfaction, she came and watched the rest of the movie with us. We talked a bit about it, and about stars - and she tried to see some before she went to bed with her flashlight and Pokemon manual. Rubles seems to be doing fine -Mark and Esme bought some more of the materials they need to build her a bigger cage.
I'm still avoiding coffee - but have three varieties of green tea to switch off from... drinking a little almond milk in it sometimes, thought to try that and see if it had any benefits. So far, so good... Really great avocado, mozzarella, black bean and red curry paste tacos for dinner tonight (Mark and Esme ate other things - so I could experiment). Esme had pointed out to Mark in the grocery store that Mom needed one of those green things the other day... heh.
add: Mark said he took a chair out to read during Esme's outside time yesterday - she was climbing trees for most of that...but for some time she was also bringing him bits of clover and flowers, and if he didn't accept them she was tucking them into his hair behind his hat and running away. // remember for later *heh*
