I'm being a tiger, ok?

4:00 - Khan Math 3rd grade to 87%
4:30 - write-up on computer
-----------typing same two pages.. until done (which was a while after 5, but counting her done then)
5:00p - done

Prototype I made of the x-ray bird, with a pocket for it's brain in the back of its head
It also has a little pouch inside it's mouth but it can't swallow anything too large - unlike the hippo we had made a while back that could eat other toys and blocks.  Esme wants me to make a bigger one.

//She did some extra work on her cat castle.. adding boxes and a 'calendar'.  She didn't get to play on the big computer (Steam games) tonight because of her lagging behind today on the assignment .. but she did play on my computer for a bit while I worked on one of my baskets.   And no staying up 'late'... right to bed at 9:30.  We'll see if that has any effect for tomorrow.
