Mr. Mustard Seed is watching the Packer game,
so I have a little time to share our week with you.
So far, so fun!
This week was pretty low key.
We wrote a small report on our glider experiment,
and read about habitats, instinct and extinction.
We also completed a scavenger hunt which was part of our curriculum.
Here's a peek at Mr. Sunshine writing his report:
He wrote the first few parts.
I ended up lightly writing the bottom half,
because I was worried he might run out of room.
He traced my letters on the second half.
My cousin is in the Army, so the boys enjoy sending him special mail treats.
Mr. Sunshine found this cute frog and said we "definitely need to send it!"
It will be on it's way on Monday!
He wrote a letter, too-
excuse the folds- I had it all enveloped up:
I found some pretty fabulous and pretty fun thrift store treasures, too!
Here's pretty fabulous:
And here's pretty fun:
I saw Sequence States and Capitals online awhile ago.
I thought it looked SUPER awesome.
I'd never seen it in a store, though,
and never expected to find it at my favorite thrift store.
It's like, brand new, and probably cost me 50 cents!
And Wacky Blasters- what can I say?!
Have you EVER seen a more colorful and cute game?!
The little trolly critters have holes on the end of their noses.
You squeeze them to try to move your poof ball to the finish line.
It's from 1990, and I pretty much love it!
All the neighborhood kids do , too!
I almost forgot!
On top of reading our textbook and filling in our notebook,
we also watched/read these:
The library is just bursting full of awesome resources!
I LOVE putting books on hold.
Mr. Mustard Seed's parents rented a German cabin in Cecil, Wisconsin.
We visited them for a day and had a lot of fun!
We went fishing, paddle boating, listened to funky German music,
and even had our first kayaking experience.
(which made me realize I'm more of a paddle boat kinda girl, hehe)
It was a cloudy, but beautiful day.
We kayaked all the way out to an island,
where we saw a crane, osprey and their nests, and an eagle nest.
The boys (especially Mr. Sunshine) thoroughly enjoyed fishing from the dock.
Here they are with some of their catches:
Here's a photo of Mr. Mustard Seed diving off of the dock:
I had some fun taking photos of our reflections on the water.
Here are a few of my favorites:
A few more photos of my cuties:
All in all, we had another fun week with Apologia's Zoology,
and definitely enjoyed our day at the lake, too.
