Here is what was inside the room.
Next door to the sick ward was the library.
It was a peaceful place. May I come in and read for a while?
The history section was extensive.
I suppose all reading and no play would make Cannon a dull boy. And Cannon is definitely not a dull boy.
I admit, we didn't get a lot of school work done that day. Peter had several bad nights last week and I was pretty worn out towards the end of the week. He got his vaccinations recently and he seems to have a reaction about a week after he gets them with a fever and not feeling well. So not much sleep at night and quite fussy during the day-- not a good combination for me. He's doing better now, but it has made school work slow going lately. I just haven't been as available as I need to be. I hope to be a little more focused this week. I have to remind myself that sometimes their own made- up games inspire them to learn far more than I do with my plans and checklists. Their games also make for much more interesting pictures and interactions with each other. Here's a fun throwback of just such a day several years ago.
