As he described it, the circle all the way to the left is a magnifying glass with many bad germs under it. The second circle from the left shows how a magnifying glass makes all the germs look bigger so you can get a good look at just one germ. I don't know what the small third circle is, but the fourth circle is an antibody (good germ) attacking one of the bad germs. He said "this is what is happening inside my body."
We had a fantastic day yesterday. I took the boys to an inflatable jumping playground while someone looked at the house. We all had a really great time. After dinner last night Kal-El climbed in my lap and said "Mommy, I want to sit on your lap forever."
Today was a library day. I'm upset that I forgot my camera, I want to get a picture of Me Too sitting in the child-sized library chairs before he gets much bigger. Kal-El has been working on "remembering things" and keeps a mental list going of things that he is interested in that he wants me to find books about at the library. This week's list was: castles, the Earth, and bears. He already has princesses and tree houses on his list for next week. I also found a great series of books about three-dimensional shapes to reinforce our geometric solids work. We have been focusing on cylinders this week (I don't do anything special inside the school room, I just make an effort to talk about cylinders a lot in normal life) so I picked up the Cylinders book.
Me Too is in a sensitive period for counting things. I picked out several books off of this list of living math books. They always pick a few books on their own. Today I caught Me Too sneaking as many books as he could into my book bag after I told him it was time to go. He looked like someone in one of those supermarket shopping sprees.
Our Bob Books arrived yesterday. I gave Kal-El the first one at the start of naps. I explained that it only had types of words in it that I knew he could sound out and that he could read it without me if he needed something to do during naptime. I turned on the monitor and heard him reading it to Bobo (his bear). After naps he read it to me and he read it to Daddy before bed. I didn't give him the next one today because he was too excited about the library books we brought home.
We will probably spend the rest of the day sitting around and reading.
