just can't do it

Those weekly round-up posts, that is. Boring to read. Boring to write. We'll just stick to the highlights from now on. So what was fun this week?

Still really enjoying Ken Burn's The Civil War, which we're slowly working our way through. Learning about women in the Civil War. Reading The Killer Angels.

Watching two episodes of Life in the Undergrowth (David Attenborough). A nighttime field trip to check out aquatic bugs. This was the coolest find:

It's a hellgrammite (dobsonfly larva).

Learned about a few new forms of poetry, the Kyrielle, the tetractys, and the tanka.
