we went to the store and shopped for dinner for a family of four and spent $20 on dinner which was $5 each.
after several painful painful hours of trying to teach the traditional subjects, we went to Collins park and played with other homeschool kids for two hours, that was 120 minutes.
we went to Barbara Bush Library, filled out a form and Magnus now has HIS VERY OWN library card.
Magnus liked Battle Brawlers so much (on Chapter 13 now of reading to self) that he decided to find other books by the same author and checked out three Naruto books and one Pokemon book.
on the way out, we discovered the CHESS CLUB and played two games of chess (group is for 10 - 16 year olds, but Magnus was welcomed and they did not trounce him but gave a lot of points away so that he was engaged the whole time.
Magnus also learned to play a new board game called GO, that was pretty kewl as well.
after going to bed at 8 pm, Magnus was discovered READING to himself for at least 1/2 an hour without any prompting.I say that we succeeded.
