My little nature lover has stocked up on books about trees and leaves for fall, and I am trying hard to get them both outside more. Tuesdays are the official “nature outing” day, but I need a last minute haircut (drivers license pic!) so instead after breakfast I sent them out on scooter and trike to explore the wonders of the neighborhood.

I have nearly no time for . . . anything really, which includes any sort of meaningful blogging. Plus my mind is all clogged up with the election. Thank goodness for Stewart/Colbert, who get me to laugh rather than cry.
Violet got a substantial part in a stage adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents. She plays Malicia, the mayor’s daughter. It’s quite exciting really — a certain local but nationally known radio personality is going to record his voice as the voice of death (which is played by a kind of muppet). But it is a lot of rehearsals to drive to, and a lot of other stuff to manage in between. She has a *lot* to memorize. The part is so her — the grandchild of one of the Sisters Grim who continually shapes her life into a story.
I am greatly overworked right now, besides.
The upshot is a less frequently updated blog, which is a shame, at least to me, because there are so many interesting bloggy conversations happening around the homeschool blog world, and I don’t have time to take part!
