The whole structure thing lasted all of a week, maybe two or three weeks if you're loose about interpretation. However, it served it's purpose as far as providing a push past stagnation, so it's all good.
We are back to not at all structured. Davan does things as the mood strikes or as she's planned in advance.
For example, I came home absolutely drenched from my morning run in the pouring rain to find that Davan had done a few chores and was, for a change, sitting at her desk, doing math.
This is a view of her room that you don't usually see. Her desk is inside her closet, so when the closet is closed, you can't see it at all.
She was almost late to teaching at Do Jump because she'd gotten so involved.
Yesterday afternoon, I met a friend to walk and Davan had to come with me because we had her back appointment directly after. We met at a library so that Davan could hang there while we walked.
When I went in to collect her, she'd found a few books she wanted to check out.
She spent most of the rest of the afternoon/evening immersed in geography. A few years ago, she went through a similar phase with US geography, but now, it's all about the world.
She found this web site and is having fun with the how many countries can you name games.
She's also been really into languages lately. She didn't do any yesterday, but she's been flying on her French and has done a year's worth of French study as of this weekend.
She also opted to use a good chunk of her long term savings to buy herself Rosetta Stone for German. We found a good deal on it and it came last week. She's been spending at least a half an hour a day on each language most days.
Additionally, she's decided she wants to learn sign language and has been using various videos on You Tube to learn words and phrases.
My time is nearly up to write this blog entry, as Davan has already made it clear that she needs the computer to work on her languages.
Of course, she always finds time to read and do various writing projects. She decided to add up all the hours she spends doing her regular actives each week with times for things such as sleeping, brushing her teeth, walking to and from Do Jump, hanging out with Lena and pretty much anything else you can think of. Then she wrote it all up in her notebook. She discovered that she has 20 hours of unaccounted for time and is now curious about what she does with those hours. She's thinking of doing a detailed study.
Here's to the joy of learning what interests you!
