Part 34: Spain and England
If you can be bothered opening that link you'll see we have a pretty lite reading week which is a perfect way to wrap up 36 weeks of learning about the Middle Ages. We could have easily spent two years in this area of history.
Daisy and I are taking a repeat journey through a delight led art/art history study with Velazques and a few of Ruben's more clothed pictures ;) while we go through I, Juan de Pareja - de Trevino as our car time audio.
We've been through the book as a family read aloud in earlier years, alongside SOTW 2.

Jay is reading a very easy chapter book as his last book for this year: Rogues' Gold ~ Pilkington
I haven't pre-read this book so I'm interested to hear his thoughts on it ... it could be a ditcher ☺
Since Jay is also studying through Hamlet for Medieval Lit he's appreciating the easier read as a nice change of pace. After Hamlet he only has Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead~ Stoppard to read, and write about, and then his reading basket is empty too.
Small side topic for my critter loving friends: We are the proud owners of 20 newly hatched poults ... and a new Apple Snail. (Mango died during a lengthy power cut :/ The tropical fish all made it. Mango didn't.)
Our new snail is called Peachy and is the most timid of any Apple Snail we've had - it's funny to watch her trying to outsmart the fish.
Poults are so much friendly at the same age than any of the chickens or ducklings we've hatched.
Pictures will follow.
