Tom Sawyer

The kids were both home today, C with a slight temperature and D because he doesn't go to school on Tuesdays. Our outdoor temperatures are in the low 90s, but we're keeping our indoor temperatures in the high 70s/low 80s. It's pretty sweaty in the evening when the electric lights have to be on. I find that even fluorescent bulbs are pretty hot.

My husband took a break from grading to watch Color of Magic (an adaptation of a Terry Pratchett Discworld story) with the kids. For TV, it's very good. Wizards are lately a bit overdone, but this is a delightfully original story, with clever visuals and excellent production values. C did some Kumon Simple Multiplication. There's a lot of repetition in this particular workbook, but C does need the practice. At bedtime, my husband has been trying to hook C on Tom Sawyer by reading it out loud to her. C is between books.
