Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.

Much Ado Podcasts

This semester, I am facilitating a Shakespeare class for our homeschool support group. As part of the class, I created a blog that the students can use to get reading assignments, schedules and, sometimes, extras that I think they might find interesting. Today, I found this great site from the United Kingdom that has podcasts of every act of Much Ado About Nothing (the play that the class is currently reading), plus interviews with the characters and the director of the production. If you are in the mood for a little diversion this evening, check it out.
