“First” week of school

The local school system went back to school this week.  We  ramped up our “school” activities and crammed in some field trips we hadn’t gotten around to this summer.

I’ve learned we need ease into things after a long break.  This week we did our reading in the morning followed by science activities and documentaries. (Once again I was blown away by how well they process visual information.)

Science Center August 2014

We took a field trip to the science center with friends to enjoy the Lego Travel Exhibit one last time before it leaves next week.  You can check the schedule to see if it will be coming to a town near you.

Atmospheric Science


We had fun learning about atmospheric science with M&Ms.

Carol Birthday Collage


It was my birthday this week.  Scott and the boys treated me to dinner out twice.  E crafted a cake topper for me and C helped me bake the cake.  Plus they gave me really nice presents.  PLUS no one had soccer practice.  What more could a girl ask for?

Hope you are having a great start to your school year!
