reproduction of the Santa Maria. I have to admit that I am a HUGE living history buff so, of course, I absolutely loved every minute of our tour. The children were not nearly as excited about touring the Santa Maria - they were looking forward to getting to the science center. Our tour guide was excellent, though, and all of the children ended up enjoying the tour very much.
COSI for a fun-filled day of hands-on science fun! My boys always enjoy the Gadgets Cafe where they get to take apart something electronic. This time, they got to take apart a computer.
Rat Basketball show. We've seen this show many times but watching the rats put the little ball in the basket never ceases to entertain us!
Renaissance Festival in Harveysburg. The boys purchased fantastic jester hats and wore them all day.
To bring this week in review to a close, I will end with five random statements that relate to our school year thus far:
- Amber finished Watership Down and since she was crying just as hard as I was when I reached the end of the novel, I know she treasured the book. We've been talking about the book at odd moments and, as always, I'm amazed by her literary insights.
- Our break from swim meets is fast coming to an end. Next week-end we have swim meets both Saturday and Sunday. All three of our children will be getting up on the blocks and racing next week-end!
- Mason finished making his volcano for science. It turned out to be a much bigger volcano than I anticipated. I'll be posting more about his project after he makes his volcano explode next week.
- Duncan designed his own insect for his science class this week. Duncan's meat-eating, cave-dwelling insect has multicolored legs and features eyes that are not equal in size. Very creative!
- Amber and I are very behind on my scheduled educational video watching for her history course. We'll be watching several episodes of 500 Nations this week-end, hopefully.
