Every Thursday, over at Like Mother, Like Daughter!
They branded leather with real brands, Ceci thought it smelled horribly.
and ground corn, which they made corn bread for snacks,
dipped candles, and sawed a candle stand
then they used the left over corn to make a treat for the birds and squirrels.
One of the teachers had attended a one room school when she was a child. While explaining a typical day, she asked for volunteers. She asked if they wanted to see what punishments for bad behavior were like. Euly had to "Sit on the Wall" (back straight against wall, knees bent like a chair). We did those in junior high basketball practice and thought they were torture.
Another child had to press his Nose in a Circle drawn on the chalk board for a designated time.
Not too bad a punishment, most likely effective since it would be humiliating to hold still and quiet in those positions. I'd imagine there were others she decided not to demonstrate.
I don't have pictures of real, but it has been real noisy and a real good time to be out of the house this week, as we have had work done on our roof. It has sounded like people heavily stomping in every part of the house, and constantly knocking at the door, so much when they did knock I didn't answer until one of the kids noticed someone really wanted our attention.
Sometimes it is good to combine all the busy into one week.
Hopefully, next week we can take it a little slower.
