Chickadee was over the moon to see an actual TARDIS at the St. Louis Science Center last week!
Quote of the Day
“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”
2022-23 School Year–Week Twenty-Four
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!
I suppose there’s no denying that I’m a nerd, now!
I was very excited to find a dress at Torrid that combined my love of 50s style fashion with my love of Doctor Who. I even found a cool necklace (only $5!!!) on Amazon to complete the look. Wearing it always makes me think of Amy Pond’s wedding speech:
When I was a kid I had an imaginary friend. The Raggedy Doctor. My Raggedy Doctor. But he wasn’t imaginary. He was real. I remember you. I remember! I brought the others back, I can bring you home too. Raggedy Man, I remember you and you are late for my wedding! I found you. I found you with words like you knew I would. That’s why you told me the story. The brand new ancient blue box. Oh clever. Very clever. Something old. Something new. Something borrowed. Something blue.
It may seem a little costume-y or silly to some, but I love my Tardis dress!
