We also weaved placemats out of poster board. I explained how a story is weaved by many people to make a whole Tall Tale…I'm not sure if they got that symbolism, but they were sure proud of their mats.
For science the light saga continued. This time we talked about how light bends when it goes through things like water and curved glass (lenses.) We did a really fun experiment where you put a penny in a bowl and get far enough away that you can't see the penny and then add water to the bowl, and you can see the penny again. It was like magic. We also did a lot with magnifying glasses including making a fire….well, it was more like burn holes through dry leaves and make smoke. We couldn't quite get flames going…it wasn't quite sunny enough.
For field trip, DADDY took the boys to a fire engine museum. The boys had a BLAST. They even got free fireman hats. (Mommy liked the break too :)
For the last two weeks, Maxwell has been taking swimming lessons every morning. He has loved it and has learned a lot, but I have to say that I'm so glad it's over. It was getting me out of sync with my morning routine. Some days we weren't even doing devotionals until after lunch...
