  1. Tuesday, 26 Jan 2021: 1. Hike outside at least one mile per day. Walked with my pack and 20 pounds, but forgot to turn on the GPS tracker until I was a ways out. So I recorded a walk of 1.65 miles, with another 0.5 miles or so lost to history. 2. Complete at least one page in my Latin language textbook. Read the LLPSI student manual, chapters 25 and 26. I've been casting covetous eyes at a particular online even recently, but I've just about decided I won't participate, at least for this year. Living Latin and Greek Onli

Read through the first half of the reading for LLPSI chapter 26, Daedelus and Icarus. I took a year of Latin about thirty years ago in high school, but I don't remember a thing from then except that I hated having to memorize tables of noun and verb endings. What I did

Studied the grammar lesson for LLPSI, chapter 25. Deponent verbs are a thing I didn't know was a thing. "There is a group of verbs in Latin which have passive forms but active meanings. They are called deponent verbs because they have "laid aside" (dëpönö, -ere) their passive meanings but have retained their passive forms. They are translated only in the active voice."

  8. Tuesday, 19 Jan 2021: 1. Hike outside at least one mile per day. Tuesdays are hard to make time in the evening, so I did the bare minimum 1 mile at 8:30pm. Better than nothing. 2. Complete at least one page in my Latin language textbook. Read through the student's manual for LLPSI, chapter 21 and a little of 22. Lots of hard grammar like past perfect, present infinitive, perfect infinitive, perfect participle, passive of the perfect, and perfect infinitive passive. "Perfect" means completed, so it is one form of talking about something in the past tense.
  9. Monday, 18 Jan 2021: 1. Hike outside at least one mile per day. Walked with my family for at least two and a half miles, hiking on a trail.

Complete at least one page in my Latin language textbook. Read through the rest of LLPSI Chapter 23, both the reading and the grammar lesson. This chapter formally introduced the future participle. I've reached a point (again) where my comprehension is slipping. Lots of new vocabulary over the past half-dozen chapters, and lots of new verb forms. I'm going to need to go over the student manual and maybe back up and go over the l
  12. Friday, 15 Jan 2021: 1. Hike outside at least one mile per day.

Complete at least one page in my Latin language textbook. Read through the main reading and the grammar lesson for LLPSI Chapter 22. We met a tabellarius (courier) and a janitor (doorkeeper, janius=doorway). And a big scary dog. The chapter is called "Cave Canem" (Beware the dog). Trying to help my kids with goals of their own. One wants to learn how to draw better, one wants to go on
  15. Tuesday, 12 Jan 2021: 1. Hike outside at least one mile per day. Walked 1 mile after 8pm, so a little cold, dark and lonely. I worked late, and my wife was out this evening with her job, so this was really the first time I had free. It was something I wouldn't have done without this format, so that's nice. 2. Complete at least one page in my Latin language textbook. Reviewed in the LLPSI student manual for chapters 15, 16, and a little from 17 before I had to get dinner going.
