Tuesday July 3

Bella and Sophie did math and copywork and I took Anthony to the doctor because his ankle was suddenly swollen and painful and he didn’t remember any injury. The pediatrician sent us to the hospital for x-rays and a blood test to rule out Lyme disease (since two years ago his knee suddenly swelled up and he tested positive for Lyme.).

Bella read to Lucy, cleaned the living room, made a blueberry pie, and helped with the dishes.

Bella and I went to the grocery store.

Wednesday July 4

Independence Day, pool party.

Dom’s brother always throws a huge party.

This year we had some impromptu nature study. A dragonfly landed on my finger and stayed for several minutes, letting me get a nice close look. Then there were two small pale colored frogs on the fence. At first I thought a child had left some rocks on the fence, then I thought little frog statues. And finally realized they were alive. Some googling convinced me they were grey tree frogs, so we had an impromptu science lesson.
