We're still working on weather this week in science, we continued to read some of our books from the Tang Dynasty and also moved in the the Byzantium era. I decided not to stress about having cut and dried breaks between history sections since we are using so many living books this year, we can't always finish them in one week. Besides, we're generally still in the same time period.
J did an experiment from his Slimy science kit. He was able to read the directions himself but needed help with the measurements
We completed the Measuring Wind experiment that came as part of this printable pack. Since the weather was bad we recreated wind using a fan in the kitchen and completed the experiment.
We attended the local Wellness Roundup where the boys got to see The Mister and I have our biometrics done, they got to see the effects of smoking and drug use on the human body, have a pretend cast put on their arm, visit the local firefighters and practice using the smoke house, and they enjoyed some purely fun activities such as a bounce house and snow cones, and they each came home with a bag full of goodies.
We all took turns creating melted crayon art.
Then we used our art to create fun and colorful leaves to decorate our window for fall.
We spent Friday at the children's museum with my mom, some friends of ours and their 2.5yo. It was SO much fun! The facility is so wonderful and the boys had a great time playing and discovering the newly opened outside areas. We made plans to go back soon with our friends.
We also had the opportunity to see some performers at a local coffee shop that The Mister has been trying to get me to check out. J really enjoyed the performances, since it didn't start until 8:00 in the evening A fell asleep half way through. I discovered a wonderful coffee house that will no doubt become a regular relaxation spot for me, and they make yummy chai lattes!
