Monday, November 3rd
One thing I've been wanting to do more is read about the daily Saint from my Liturgical Yearbook. It is one of a few improvements to our schedule I'm planning with the new Liturgical year, but we did read about St. Martin de Porres this morning. The girls were all quite impressed by him and his many miracles.

I have to admit I didn't feel like doing anything today. So I was actually quite happy that Elizabeth did all her math for the week (all 10 pages), Cecilia did her vocabulary, latin and memorized the opening sentence to the Constitution of the U.S.A. And Felicity did her latin, spelling, and poetry, which was memorizing the second stanza of G. K. Chesterton's "A Christmas Carol."

Felicity only had math and religion left for the week but she managed to finish all her math this morning. Elizabeth did her English, Spelling and Poetry, which was memorizing the first stanza to "A Christmas Carol." Cecilia did her spelling.

Felicity was done for the week. Elizabeth did her Latin and then joined her sisters playing. Cecilia trudged through a few lessons in math. I told her we cannot leave all her math to the last day like this again. It isn't that it was hard, because it wasn't. She had a few questions, but once answered, she could do it. She just didn't want to. We will need to space out the math lessons each week to avoid the unhappiness of so much math in one day.
In the evening we watched MasterChef Junior. Cecilia wants very much to start cooking more and we will find a way to oblige her.

Cecilia finished her final math lesson for the week. There was great rejoicing. Then James took the oldest three to see Big Hero Six. I'm told they liked it, but not much more than that to avoid spoilers. :)
