Chickadee was over the moon to see an actual TARDIS at the St. Louis Science Center last week!
“You know the sound the TARDIS makes? That wheezing, groaning? That sound brings hope wherever it goes. To anyone who hears it, Doctor. Anyone. However lost. Even you.” Billie Piper as The Moment in Doctor Who‘s “The Day of the Doctor”
This was our last week of school before spring break, and the theme for the week was wrapping things up…we finished a remarkable number of things!
Ladybug graphed parabolas in algebra 2. She finished To Kill a Mockingbird. In history, she read about the breaking up of the Islamic Empire and also about Vikings in Britain. She finished the chapter on the gas phase in chemistry, focusing on the Ideal Gas Law.
Chickadee worked with ratios in math. We finished reading The Journey Begins. We also finished the science chapter on snakes and lizards. In history, she read all about Julius Caesar…the battles he fought, his rise to power, and his untimely death. She diagrammed compound sentences in grammar.
We also had an opportunity for a field trip this week…the Missouri History Museum had a “History Exploration Day” about mid-century women, which was right up my alley. The workshop on “Women, War, and the Workforce” was, in my opinion, one of the best they’ve presented. There were also some cool, um, “artifacts” to explore:
While we were out, we swung by the St. Louis Science Center:
I’m looking forward to spring break!
“You know that in nine hundred years of time and space and I’ve never met anybody who wasn’t important before.” Matt Smith as The Doctor in Doctor Who
“Oh, the pointing again! They’re screwdrivers! What are you going to do, assemble a cabinet at them?” John Hurt as the War Doctor in “The Day of the Doctor”
“Never cruel or cowardly. Never give up. Never give in.” David Tennant and John Hurt as The Doctor in “The Day of the Doctor”
Lots of planets have a north! Christopher Eccleston as The Doctor in “Rose.”
I love how cheeky the Ninth Doctor was, right to the very end!
Rose, before I go I just wanna tell you – you were fantastic… absolutely fantastic… and d’you know what? So was I. Christopher Eccleston as The Doctor in “The Parting of the Ways”
Chickadee loves our new furniture!
In other Chickadee news, her interest in Doctor Who has been renewed. One of her current favorite pastimes is running around the house with a cape-blanket, and using a writing instrument as a sonic screwdriver while she hums music from the show and makes the “Mad Doctor’s” attack eyebrows at everybody…it’s adorable!
Bunny really loves this scene from “The Day of the Doctor!”
Whatever you’ve got planned, forget it! I’m the Doctor. I’m 904 years old. I’m from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous. I’m the Oncoming Storm, the Bringer of Darkness, and you… are basically just a rabbit, aren’t you? Ok, carry on… just a… general… warning… David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor in “The Day of the Doctor”
