Science brings beauty...

Friday, April 16, 2010

We had a great week this week...we are beginning to drop subjects that we have completed for the year! Spelling, Word Roots, and History will be done very soon!  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Next week is our curriculum fair which is coming at the right time...it will re-energize me a bit as I am feeling burnt out on schooling right now.

This week Noah's science brought some beauty to our home instead of the normal excitement of blowing something up!  I normally don't buy fresh flowers for our home...it is just something extra that we don't need to spend money on.  This week, however, Noah needed to do a flower dissection.  So I headed to the store, and found some beautiful tulips! We did the dissection and then got to enjoy them sitting in the window sill! I fell in love with their beauty, and now I want to buy more!  See, science IS dangerous even if you never blow up a thing!  LOL

We also got a chance to take care of Titan's little Uncle Aurik. Isn't he a doll???!!  This is good training for the kids as they help train this little one and clean up his messes!

Those are beautiful tulips. And, that dog is a cutie! It sounds nice to be finishing up some of your subjects. I wish we were! :-)

I love the tulips! I am also one who doesn't think flowers are really a necessary expense. However, when I receive them as a gift, I'm shocked at how much I really enjoy their beauty.

Congrats on seeing the light!!

If it's the convention (the curriculum fair) that you're writing about then I know one of the vendors (Heppners Legacy). Be sure to stop by...they are so kind!

Blessings to you...and i WILL be following.
