I had a doctor's appointment in the morning and, though Yoav was relaxed and happy for the two hours out of the house (we went out for bagels before the appointment), the second we got home, the dog jumped up on him and got him (slightly!) wet and it was downhill from there.
Looking back and thinking about things, I'm wondering if I need to connect and collect as he's getting out of the car. The car ride is certainly a mild separation. I also needed to be more organized to get him transitioned faster to form drawing, which I wanted to do first, but he started drawing as soon as we got in and then got Elie drew on his drawing him while I was in the laundry room getting new clothes, and, well, it took a long time for us to recover :)
So I ended up just nixing the day and we had lunch and spent part of the afternoon outside and the rest drawing.
We're doing Marsha Johnson's drawing class together (me and Yoav). Each week she announces (on the WaldorfHomeEducators Yahoo group) a new thing for us to draw. We're a day behind on our week three drawing, but we did it today.
