Beth didn't respond to my confirmation email last night, and didn't answer this afternoon when I called for my consult. I hope everything is okay. She is in the Northeast where there have been heavy rains and flooding.
Our potluck was nice, with 6 families in attendance. We're a small group, but I really prefer it this way. It's warming up and within a month I think we'll have to switch to an earlier meeting time for the summer. We also discussed some alternative sites for when it gets really hot.
After our failed attempt at Campfire, we brought up the idea of starting a Roots & Shoots group. We would make it part of park day and only do it once a month, with a few of us taking turns planning the activities.
Still no Enki materials, but what can you expect from the USPS and Media Mail? Our package from Paper Scissors Stone did arrive, with Lyra Super Ferby pencils, Stockmar wax, new paint brushes, and a big chalkboard (18" X 24") for me to use. I took advantage of the 10% off special last week to buy all the pencils we should need for at least 2 years (12 red, 12 blue, 6 green, 6 yellow), plus 45 wax pieces.
Next week we need to get back into our rhythm; we've wavered a bit this week. I need to start adding in more pieces on a regular basis, like watercolor painting and modelling (we used to paint every week). I have a word family story to get us started next week, and hopefully can make the Conso-Nant board this weekend.
Oh yeah, the refigerator isn't working right. The freezer is at 0 degrees, but the fridge is between 55 and 60 degrees, and things are spoiling. I don't know what to do about buying food, and eating out until it is fixed would be expensive! Even foods like citrus need to be in the fridge this time of year. I hate to think of all of the food I have to throw away. I'm tempted to have Papa pull out the pop-up trailer so I can use that fridge until this one is fixed. Heck, even an ice chest may be cooler.
I'll put tomorrows plans in another post.
