Morning Basket ~ Morning prayers at the breakfast table while we awaited our Apple Puff Pancake to cool (it was a little bit like the Three bears and the hot porridge) It was very tasty after it cooled.

Music Appreciation focus this morning – listened to Vivaldi's Autumn, then Tchaicovsky's October Song, it was decided that we liked the Vivaldi better. I also played some other random Vivaldi's and our favorite was this one – Nulla in Mundo Pax Sincera :)

Violet:
Math- A+ Notes: found the area of some complex shapes and wrote the correct expressions using variables and exponents  
finished her ballad, very nicely done "The Ballad of the Haunted Wood" inspired by the woods scene in Anne of Green Gables :)Saints- St. Faustina in Stories of the Saints Vol II
Marine Bio- worked on her seagrass reading and research and then read about Mangroves and produced her sketches from the text, sadly we won't be seeing any of these beauties up close any time soon, unless some one has any tickets to Florida, say anywhere near Theresa???
