What a fun week this has been!
In Science this week, we learned about the Tropical Rainforests. For an experiment, we planted bird seed in 2 cups-one is covered one is not. And we'll see which sprouts first. The girls all predicted the one with NO cover would sprout first as the other isnt getting any air.
We started these on Wednesday. So far, no change, except that the one with the cover is getting a wee bit of fuzzy stuff growing on the soil.
We are also reading Nate Saint this week and are really enjoying it. The girls colored a picture of a Toucan while I read.
For art, we made Carnival costumes. Instead of using pillowcases, we took a big piece of paper, folded it in 1/2 and cut out a moon shape. Then they decorated with paints, markers, punches, pom poms, and sequins. Oh, and crayons. The table was CRAZY messy for a while there!
For our Vocab cards this week, we learned about the Zones (Polar, Temperate, Tropical). The girls think it funny that when its the dead of winter here, they are wearing shorts and tshirts down in South America!
On Thursday or Friday of every week, the girls do a 'pretty verse'. They write out the memory verse for the week and then decorate and we hang it up.
We have enjoyed this book alot!

Tomorrow is my oldest daughter's 10th birthday. TEN! It's crazy to think, but I got married at 18. And she will be 18 in only EIGHT years now!! Of course, according to her daddy, she ain't NEVER gonna get married! =)
And then on Sunday is my hubby and I's 14 year anniversary. He's like fine wine, he just gets better and better as he ages. =) I am one lucky woman to be married to such a GREAT guy =)
