We have spent the month of October just keeping up with all our school work. My kids have had all sorts of projects that they have had to do for school.
They also had to make a trip to the dump. Not my favorite field trip. Too stinky!
We took a walk one day to pick up garbage for another school project. There wasn't too much complaining. The path lead to the park so they didn't mind walking and picking up trash knowing they would get to play around at the park for awhile.
Molly hasn't had too many projects. She just tags along with many of the boys activities.
We did make some Borax crystals one day.
Sophie's Biology class has some interesting labs every other week.
This was an experiment she did about photosynthesis.
We got to punch holes in spinach leaves and then pull out all the oxygen in them, place them in water and watch to see how soon, depending on how close they were to the light, the little green dots floated to the surface. Kinda cool experiment!
