Day 35

Morning Time

  • 1 chapter of The Bloody Gauntlet
  • a section of Christ the King -- continuing about Charles V and the Turkish threat, and Suleiman
  • some poems from Harp and Laurel Wreath -- a passage by Prospero from The Tempest, The Vulture by Hilaire Belloc, and Captain Kidd by SV Benet.
  • Creed in Slow Motion -- started chapter V, discussed a bit.


  • Another reading from the Living My Religion primer.
  • Lesson V in the Cardinal National Primer.
  • 2 pages of adding numbers to make 8 and 9.
  • some work from Handwriting without Tears -- drawing exercises (filling in a circle with circular motions/putting spokes on a wheel; putting legs on a caterpillar body)


  • Counting, lots of it. He is counting up past 40 with guidance. He has trouble keeping track of where he is.
  • Recognizing number names (like 38, 24, etc). He can easily pick one out of three possibilities but I don't know if he could name the numbers spontaneously.
