We were counting our money this morning from our piggy banks to see if we had enough for a Skylander.
We had breakfast but I forgot to take a picture.
My mom gave us a list of chores. My chores were sweeping the dining room, picking up the living room, and sweep the living room.
Mom showed me how to use the timer on her camera so I could be in the picture too. We were doing story time. Mom was reading us a story about Viking gods. It is called Norse mythology. Tolkien used Norse mythology in The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. He loved studying Norse mythology.
We were pretending Gabriel was baby Thor because we were learning about Thor in the book we were reading. Gabriel had lightning bolts on his pajamas.
My mom let me make a hot drink to bring in my room while I was reading. My mom usually doesn’t allow me to have drinks in my room but it was a special treat. I think my mom was trying to bribe me into reading. And it worked. I was reading Harry Potter and I think it was better than the movie so far.
Mom made Dan Dan noodles. They were so good that I ate them really fast.
Then we did more school. We talked about the Viking gods. We decoded the ancient runes on our worksheet. We talked about different gods. We learned that we get some of our days of the week named after Norse gods. Odin’s day is Wednesday. Thor’s day is Thursday. Freya’s day is Friday.
We had a project that was making a Viking longship out of clay. When we baked them some of the sails on the ships fell over a little bit. I liked doing our project a lot. I think my mom had a very good idea.
One of my evening chores was putting up the chickens and collecting the eggs. I also had to wash the eggs.
We had dinner. I almost forgot to take a picture. I remembered after I ate all my tomatoes. It was very delicious.
We went to the store and Gabriel was sitting in the front of the cart for the very first time.
Gabriel decided he was done with being in the front of the cart. Mom didn’t bring in the baby carrier so she had to carry him and push the cart.
When we got home we got ready for bed. Then we said prayers. My mom taught us how to use a prayer rope a long time ago.
