We ended up having one who cried "Uncle" and went inside and returned with a fork! (Don't you love their little stocking feet - they love these shoe/sock things!)
I had to snag a little extra dough to make hubby and I a little treat too! However, I didn't think that I needed to shape them into the pillars of Rome and despite not being historically accurate they were GOOD!
We also had a lot of fun with science this week. We spent a lot of time talking about plants and how God made the little seeds to know exactly which way to grow, even when it is all covered up in the dark soil! We did a neat experiment that showed the effects of gravity on a plants root system!
I'm not sure what the girls are doing in this picture. They look a little like the "mad scientists" complete with croquet mallets!Everyone was excited when the little roots started to show themselves today! Gravity makes the roots grow down! In a couple of days we will turn the jar over and watch what the roots do when they are growing the wrong way!
Next week in History we are studying the Celts. The kids are reading (or being read) Beowulf according to their age level and in science we are going to start studying the Classification system and ....well, I'll just have to show you next week!
Have a happy weekend!
