A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
We are reading "Indian Captive: The Story of Mary Jemison" by Lois Lensky aloud as a family as part of our morning school time. It's a fantastic story that we are really enjoying! This morning we were reading about how they hadn't had rain for a very long time, and their corn was dying. So they sang songs to the Thunder God to ask for rains. We haven't had rain for quite a while, either! So we did our own rain dances this morning. I chanted, Andrew played the 'drum' (a 10 gallon bucket), and the kids took turns doing interpretive dances. Well, it rained this afternoon! It was a very short little rain shower. Maybe next time we'll have to make our rain dance a little longer. Or maybe I shouldn't let Josh's interpretive dance be a snoring nap on the couch...
