Yard Schooling

On a day like Friday, there is no way we would be caught indoors!

There was time for reading about ancient Egypt, practicing handrwriting, disecting a crocus, and drawing pictures of spring flowers, and for bubbles, and building, and pterodactyl gliders and fun with the neighbor kids after they got home. I can't imagine a nicer spring day.

And we visited the Online Hieroglyphics Translator, which lets you translate text into hieroglyphs.
