7/21/19:Olivia gives lessons.

We had a very nice gathering at the Front Porch Library after an unexpected week off (my husband Ray was in the hospital with Lyme).
 
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, we read a brief history of astronomy and the space race (we felt bad about the dogs who went into space and didn’t come back).
 
Emonie joined us for the first time and Brianna returned after a long absence. With Klark and Olivia we had a small but friendly group. Thanks to our neighbor Miss Karen, we had a huge spread of crossword puzzles for kids from the New York Times. We opened the page on one of our card tables and went to work. Although the puzzle guys at the Times don’t think exactly like we do, we did pretty well.
 
Then we took turns hiding plastic fruit in the yard and razzing each other for being so blind. “You’re warm! You’re hot! You’re burning!”
 
After that we broke out the art supplies. Olivia gave lessons on drawing eyes. Emonie and Brianna were super-impressed. “On the a-mazing scale you are a 1,000 plus!” 
 
We never got around to the big project I had planned, which was designing a town, but there is always next week. Always.
 
Another fine day at the Front Porch Library.
