Corner View: 7:45 P.M. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

This week's Corner View was really different. It was "what were you doing at 7:45 P.M. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday", so here is my answer to that question:

Friday at 7:45 P.M. the laundry had just finished drying, so I had gone to the apartment complex's laundry room to pick it up:



On Saturday my son had been digging through his closet and found a set of face paints. "Do you want to play make-up with me?" He asked, so I painted his face to look like a tiger. This was something we had never done together before, because he has never wanted his face painted before, even when we have gone to festivals or carnivals where other kids were getting their faces painted.
At 7:45, I had just finished painting his face. He really liked being a tiger for about a half hour and then his sensory issues kicked in and he told me it had to be washed off right away.



On Sunday at 7:45 P.M. I sat down in the rocking chair in the living room to eat a salad and proof read a three page assignment that my husband will be giving his Anthropology students this week. Blaze, my eight year old was crawling under the rocking chair, pretending he was being swallowed by a whale and my husband was also eating a salad, while working on the computer.

Your son made the best tiger for those 30 mins!
PS what was the three page assignment? As an anthropologist, I'm quite curious!

Crescent Moon said...

The assignment was about different types of maps and what information can be gleaned from them.

Here is the introduction:

"Archaeology is about more than artifacts—space and landscape are also important. Spatial representations of a landscape--maps—are a key component of archaeology. Archaeologists use maps to locate site areas, and a crucial part of recording a site consists of making a site map. For this week’s lab assignment, we will study and discuss five different representations of Fort George Island, one of the major locales in American historical archaeology. The island contains one of the largest Spanish missions in Florida (San Juan Del Puerto), as well as Kingsley Plantation, the starting point of African American archaeology in the United States. The maps are from a variety of different time periods, and although they are all maps of the same island, they display information in different ways."

Isn't life with kids a beautiful thing? They take so much from us and yet give back so much more in hugs and smiles!
