"I love studying Egypt!"

Yes, that sentence was heard coming out of the mouth of my son. My son who whines and gripes about having to do History "every day!" My son whose favorite phrase is "do we have to?" My son loves studying Egypt. He says they were people who came after the early people. (I guess chronological history is paying off!) He made a mastaba out of wooden ABC blocks. He made a sand pyramid at the park - at least he tried to. And he told one of our friends that he loves studying Egypt and told her pretty much everything he knew about it. I wish I had had a tape recorder because it would have made a fabulous narration.

So yes, it was park day today so we didn't do any actual work but Egypt was all around. On a semi-related side note, it looks like I'm going to have to do some schedule revamping because it turns out that this park day, my favorite park day in the whole world, is going to be meeting every week instead of every other week. There's no way I'm going to be able to do phonics, math, grammar, spelling, history, and art on park day. We're generally very lucky if we just do math and phonics on park day. It's so worth it though. I really, really love this group of people.

Happy Autumnal Equinox. Our Fall Quarter officially starts today but since we will be on vacation next week, we'll formally start the Fall Quarter on October 1st. See you then. :)

Sounds fun! Egypt can be pretty interesting.
My son enjoyed it too . . he asked for a Pyramid Sphinx cake for his birthday one time (years ago now). :-)

Park day every week? I'm thrilled, though I'll have to do some schedule rearranging too. I only missed today because they screwed up on my schedule this week at work - I'm not supposed to be scheduled before 5 (to have time for park day, etc.), and had to go in at 1 today. My boss has been apologizing all week.

Egypt has so much interesting stuff, how could it not be fun? :)
