Monday is Ladybug day

8.15a    - puppy training, bathing Lucy
8.30    - reading aloud: Droon book #1 (done)
8.45    - reading aloud: "Misty of Chincoteague" by Maguerite Henry (start)
9.15    - spelling #15,16,17 in second grade
9.30    - break

10:00   - khan math and worksheets : 2 times tables, 2 digit addition, perimeter
10:45   - Minecraft island and ciphers
//In Droon the princess writes backwards notes to the children as secret messages.  We wrote backwards Minecraft books that told where the next clue would be found, and made a chain of items to be found in places in the EsmeExplores world.  We also made an 'Assateague Island' with horses like the Misty book to come back to later.

12:45   - break

//walk to mailbox - our seed order came, and they sent us a free pack of Love-in-a-Mist, too.  Esme checked the order and said it was all right.

1p    - reading: "Misty of Chincoteague" to chapter 4.
1.30    - ladybug experiments : reflected light or heat?  Which are they attracted to?
//We had a ladybug swarm at our mailbox..and they seemed to be congregating on light colored things, which was odd, considering dark colored things are warmer.  Daddy came up with a test - tape black and white paper to a pole they were already on and see which they moved towards.  They went to the white paper and away from the black paper. 
1.45 -  done
 warm sunshiney day
 You just gotta jump for joy :)

Apparently, dogs can 'fly'...or just be silly.
