Fun Art Friday

It has been a crazy week with so much going on. The girls started biology class and Muddy Boots this week. They loved both classes too.  They have homework for biology. Zoey is thrilled. Sierra hasn't said much. They keep talking about the classes so I know they enjoyed it and learned so much. 

To end the week we finally got around to art. They didn't like the art idea at first but when they did it they really got into it. The project was resist painting using oil pastels and watercolor paints. It looked like such fun I had to try one of my own. 


Done painting. Just hanging out. 

Zoey's completed project. 
Sierra's completed project. 
Mommy's project. Mine is much smaller than theirs but it is hard to tell. 

That's all for now. Thanks for reading.

Back to school 2015

That's right we are back at school again. The girls are starting 2nd and 4th grades. Here are a few pictures of the first few days. 

First day of school tradition- brownies! Sierra made them this year. 
Day two, starting our new science curriculum. We found butterflies all over this garden of Zinnias on our observation walk. 
The new desk for Zoey is working wonderfully for her. 
We have to take breaks to get our bodies moving. Thankfully the weather hasn't been so horribly hot this week. 
This had nothing to do with school. It is just funny. Thanks for stopping by.

Inclined plane

A few weeks ago our science topic was inclined planes. What started out as a simple experiment .....
rolling marbles and a golf ball down an inclined plane......

quickly escalated...

and then escalated even more. 

They laughed as they experimented and tried new things. We discussed all sorts of things like why does it work, why do some things go farther and why do they stop. 

Next we painted with an inclined plane. 
Marble+paint+paper+inclined plane=pretty cool art. 

Painting marble in action! 

We even made inclined planes with our snack. 

I think they got the concept and had fun too. Thanks for reading.

Bloggers Block

Oh poor, sad and lonely blog, when will I update you? Who knows? Is it a case of writers block? Or too busy to slow down and type a few things? Maybe any or all of those.
