Grandgirls! Stone Mountain Ledge! Bike! 7.23.20

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:50 pm  

I studied Spanish and did my brain training.

Learned a new word this morning ”descalzo” which means “barefoot” I like that one.

Grand girls came over, always good.

I got three new wooden puzzles to work with them on. Letters, numbers, and shapes.

I have them for about eight hours a day. I spend a significant amount of time just working on educational type things.

I’m also teaching them how to scramble some eggs and cook them in the microwave.

I give them a chance to play with markers on a whiteboard.

I let them practice some exercises on my weight bench.

They have fun jumping on the bed.

Took them to Stone Mountain for a hike. I like to show them natural things like moss and lichens and how they grow.

Then we went to where in the old days they cut granite from Stone Mountain. We hiked up a little bit there and also looked at an exhibit there. I was showing them the drill marks here.

I got home and modified Penelope’s car seat. Sometimes the design of the seats are really bad. It was very difficult to get the bottom part latched. So I added about 3 inches of length on that. I borrowed a similar material from another seat that we never used and then sewed it on. I took my time and made a lot of stitches so it’s super strong. Now it’s easy to put on her and she doesn’t complain about it. Took me nearly an hour, but worth it.

Another hot day. Felt like 99.

Rode my bike 15.23 miles.

It’s pretty clear tonight so I’m getting ready to go and see if I can spot the comet. I’ve already seen it once, but I’d like to see it in a darker environment.
