Our internet has been out a lot of the last week. Out on Sat. Fixed on Monday afternoon. Out again on Wed and then fixed again on Thur afternoon. We've missed having it - and then a part of me thinks it is a nice break.
Wanted to share about a couple of our book clubs. We read Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise McGraw in November. This has been my daughter's favorite book club book. (Thanks Joe for the recommendation!) I too found it to be a very interesting piece of historical fiction set in (no surprise) ancient Egypt.
Our February title was King Alfred's English: A History of the Language We Speak and Why We Should be Glad We Do by Laurie White. A fascinating book on the history of England and the way history affected the language we speak! So many interesting things to learn such as why we spell "knife" with a K and why "A" is an "uppercase" letter and much, much more! A really fun look at history!
This is really an enjoyable time. We meet just once a month. I have mentioned doing this to one of my boys and he is also very interested in starting up a club for boys. Or maybe boys and girls since it would be a younger group? I would love to hear from any of you that have done this.
