School and radishes

I harvested my first two radishes today. The rest look like they need at least another week, plus water.

C continues to play school with D. This afternoon, she spent her breaks from homework and CCD worksheets playing school with him. She covered morning meeting, history, math, reading and recess. Today's math worksheet was more age appropriate than yesterday's: 1 + 1, 2 + 2, 2 + 3, 3 + 2, 4 + 2, 5 +2. I wasn't around to see D's math lesson (and I assume that C filled out the worksheet for him), but I see that the worksheet is marked A+. (Earlier today, D did 20+ pages of Kumon's Numbers 1-30 for me. It's mostly dot-to-dots and number tracing so far. I'm a big fan of the preschool level Kumon workbooks.)

This evening we (mainly my husband and C) were doing some planning for our next board game meeting at school. The two of them were working on mancala (this internet version comes to you courtesy of the AFL-CIO), which we happen to already have several copies of as part of our multi-game sets. It is a fun game to play at home, but I have no desire to deal with keeping track of dozens of those little plastic pellets at school. We'll probably do checkers, or something like that.
