Bethany did a little school and got the news that if she had everything done and was making a ‘A’ in Science, she doesn’t have to take the final. She has an ‘A’ and everything is done, so she gets to skip that final. A nice unseen reward. She still has finals in Art, Nutrition and Math to do though.
We went to the park after lunch and we had a small crowd there of public school kids (teacher conferences) and we had our own small crowd of homeschoolers, about 10 families with an average of 2 kids each, so about 20 kids. It was nice to see so many of our friends and some new friends too. Hannah was in a deep conversation with L and I asked his Dad if L liked MLP, no….how about Dr. Who? Yes! Then that’s what Hannah was talking about.
After dinner (Beef soup with cheese tortellini) James and I went to Alamo movie house to see North by Northwest. Any chance I get to see a classic film on the big screen – I take it. If you haven’t seen this classic Hitchcock on the big screen, you are missing out, especially on the airplane scene. We watched this movie with the kids before we went to Mt. Rushmore one time, but it’s always good to see a classic no matter how many times you’ve seen it. Cary Grant is at his best in this film, sure I like him when he was black and white and younger, but in this film he looks pretty good for his age, maybe a bit too tan, but not bad.
Tomorrow we have friends coming over to visit (they are in from China) and school to do and that’s about it.
