‘A day in the life’ {Thursday}

OK, so I could have picked any day this week. Monday was full of school and Chinese class for Hannah. Tuesday was more school and a walk at Hudson gardens. Wednesday is always light because of Park day, so I chose today. Yeah, I knew that we had a concert at the library and I [...]

Klezmer music, SAME and chutes

We did some school this morning and then left before lunch to get downtown for music at the library. Today was Klezmer music with a clarinet and cello. So, here is what we learned: the word klezmer comes from a combination of Hebrew words: kli, meaning “tool, or utensil” and zemer, meaning “to make music”; [...]

Saturday

Last night we had an awesome praise and worship night at church. The only thing bad about over an hour of singing at the top of your lungs is that it wears you out, but it’s good for the soul. Today I finally got open spots for the 3-D printer from the library. I didn’t [...]

Grace made a necklace for her friend Alex, it has coral pictures on both sides; Bethany cut out sentences and assembled them in the glass locket. The kid movie for Wednesday was Madagascar 3, then we headed to the park for park day. [...]

Weekend, Monday

Saturday my Step-Mom and nieces came into town. They parked their camper in Pueblo and drove up for lunch. They brought the cutest puppy with them, it’s like a teeny-tiny Maisy. We had a good lunch and chatted at the house for awhile, they they took off for Pueblo and we watched the Lego movie [...]

Library craft

Grace and Hannah made necklaces at the library. Their were old books to craft from and look what Grace found: a baby humpback and words to go with it. Hannah found a watercolor of the St. Louis arch (where she got Mr. Otter) and since none of the words would fit, she found a picture [...]

Clean up, ice cream, play-date, library

We had a clean up date this morning at a Salvation Army shelter. There must have been a mix-up because when we got there, our greeter wasn’t there and the guy who was didn’t know anything about it. We rolled with it though, we grabbed trash bags and gloves and cleaned up the outside of [...]

Time to read Tuesday

We went to the library for a show, and we did get books and read too – so we crossed that item off the list. We went to see Peter Davison do his act, ‘See things differently.’ He’s an amazing juggler, physical comedian and can turn ordinary objects into amazing things. He juggled while on [...]

Page to stage

We went to the library this morning to see a Page to Stage performance of Jack and the Beanstalk. Jack traded his cow for some magic beans, but the beanstalk led him to a giant’s castle filled with books! His mother was glad for the beans, they had food to eat; Jack was glad for [...]

Fun Friday

The girls went to bed late, but I guess they got enough sleep because when their guest left they got right to work. Bethany had 2 Scantron tests to take, the kind that keeps going the more you get right, she hates those. Grace had to write math answers to 4 tests by hand, they [...]

Went to the library

I felt so stupid. I was standing next to the computer, looking all over for the mouse. I looked behind it, under it and I was just about to go ask the librarian where the mouse was….when I touched the screen. Yep, it’s a touch screen. Guess whose book this is? And this one? If [...]

Pi day

We came full circle today, a little Pi day humor. Here is a fun site with lots of stuff to do for Pi day. We started at the downtown library with a little Shakespeare. What I loved about it – the guy performing the monologues from Henry V, Macbeth and Richard II gave us a [...]

Maya and kites

No, the Maya didn’t make kites…actually I don’t know if they did or not, but kites are later. First off, wasn’t Mt. Evans looking splendid? Today we went to the DMNS to see the Maya exhibit with our homeschool group, I think we had about 38 kids and that was more than any school group [...]

Monday

But, before I forget, I have to tell you about brunch at Jezebel’s….and why you shouldn’t park uphill on the ice. Since the girls were still at the sleepover Sunday morning, James and I got to try another restaurant on our list – Jezebel’s. It’s in the Highlands (what awesome restaurant isn’t?) It’s Southern food [...]

This morning H^3 had a presentation at the Denver Voice. The Voice is a paper sold by homeless vendors, written by homeless people and volunteers and staffed by volunteers and some homeless people. It is relevant news, news from the street from a homeless perspective and news from around the world. We learned that the [...]
