Friday, 5 Nov

It was an errand day.  I told JD at the beginning of the school day that "if I make it to the bank today that will be all right with me."  And that's about all we did too.  Any amount of disposable time I HAD is now gone.  It's amazing how much time can be spent cooing at babies. 

We did our devotion today.  It was about the British holiday called Guy Fawkes day.  There was an attempt way back on 5 Nov, 1605 to blow up the English Parliament.  But the mission failed.  Today they still celebrate with a display of fireworks and  bonfires.  Doesn't that seem strange to celebrate a failure.  Not to me, because when the Romans and Jewish leaders nailed Jesus to the cross and he rose three days later, THEY FAILED!  Is there room for victory in failure?  You bet.  Every Easter!  So celebrate.

The next and last lesson of the day was math.  Suri sat in with us again.  We all learned about equivalent fractions with mixed numbers.  There was multiplication and division involved to figure out whether to increase or simplify the fractions.
