"I came, I saw, I conquered."  This week was all about Julius Caesar as he was the next part of our history studies (Biblioplan). It was good timing as the Ides (15th) of March was on Monday and we were studying Julius' murder which happened on that date.  Did I plan it this way? No!  It was a God thing...the timing just came together.  History became more real to the boys because we were studying Julius Caesar's life on the anniversary of his death.

For science this week we had several experiments to work on.  Zach is doing Apologia's General Sciene and Noah is doing Apologia's botany.  Here are a few photos... 
Noah is planting some herb seeds (basil, lemon balm, and chamomile) to watch them grow and eventually to add them to soap.
Here is Zach running from his experiment!  He was sure that the balloon was going to explode as it was filling up with gas.  How come he was so sure?  Because we have a track record for doing this!  The last time we did an experiment with a balloon and a soda bottle we had an explosion and a mess! I am delighted to report that Zach's fears were unfounded! No explosions this week!

lol, yay on the no exlosions! My sons would call that a "not so good" homeschool week but I say it's right on ;)

oooo! Thanks for the great science pics! I'm considering Apologia science for my daughter, who'll be 12 next year. The pics were great!

Isn't God's timing amazing! He constantly surprises me with how much he cares about the smallest things in my life. I came by way of Weekly Wrap-Up and enjoyed your post.
