Back to School

Morgayn started classes at the community college again today. Meanwhile, back at La Casa Madrona Technical Academy, the younger children are studying with Professor Sombrito:

Last week, Malcolm and Remus John did an intense read-loud of Winnie-the-Pooh in the big arm chair:

Malcolm read to Remus John for hours, both of them focused intently on the story.

Remus John finished Singapore Primary Math 1B Part II yesterday, so we celebrated his first Math Day with a succulent chocolate cake baked by Matisse:

We all sang him a very happy math day (to John McCutcheon's rollicking tune):

It makes me think of the good old days.
Happy Math Day to you!
You sure grew out of your baby problems.
Happy Math Day to you!
It's your Math Day and we wish you many more,
Fish balls and microwaves and mangoes by the score
Join Mr. Lin and we'll solve some more.
Happy Math Day to you!

Malcolm is about two weeks away from finishing Singapore Primary Math 5B and Matisse has almost finished Singapore New Elementary Mathematics 1, so we'll probably be celebrating more math days soon.
