School Highlights

Shannon is reading great - she's passed that fluency hump and will now read everything she can get her hands on - including to her siblings, which they adore.

Shannon would be a classroom teacher's nightmare in some ways - here she's happily doing her math work perched on a kitchen stool...
perfectly able to concentrate contorting herself around - slightly nervewreaking, but easily adapted at home.

Mary Grace is currently fascinated with bugs - here is a leaf she found in our backyard with (what we think are) caterpillar eggs.

We are using Real Science 4 Kids Chemistry this quarter and the kids are having a great time with it. Here they are making models of molecules using marshmallows and toothpicks.

Another experiment - observing chemical reactions 

(I think Mg tasted the vinegar in the cup)


What do the little ones do during school time? They are included as much as possible, but also have learned to have alone time...

Connor looks books in his favorite "nest" under my rocker.

Connor and Jack play restaurant.

Chilling out doing YogaKids Silly to Calm (great dvd!)
