Our Week Feb 12, 2010

Some scenes from our week…

Marshmallow Molecules

Which leads to, “Just having a molecular snack, mom”.

A new favorite geography game, Travel Mania.

(I think their favorite part is stamping those passports!)

After reading a Lego Indiana Jones game guide, Asher decided some graphing needed to be done.

He’s also a few pages into writing a game guide for a new game he’s designing, but it’s all very hush-hush.

More chemistry, testing pucker power.

We’ve spent time preparing for the Olympics by doing lots of reading : Olympia: Warrior Athletes of Ancient Greece, The Modern Olympic Games, Hour of the Olympics, studying Canada, and watching 5 minute videos on the “Science of the Olympic Winter Games” from nbclearn.com.

We’ve also spent time preparing for 3 field trips, one tomorrow involving a few presidents, another on Monday involving an engineering workshop, and then a trip to another state planned for later next week!  (we love field trips in these parts!)

One might think that I pulled this picture from the summer archives, but one would be mistaken.  While I am in long underwear and two sweaters, this girl is dressed like this.

And speaking of long underwear and sweaters, I have decided to fully embrace winter this year.  I grew up being on the ski slopes on a daily basis, and ice skating and cross country skiing, but as an adult, I had come to dread winter.  I am a hot weather kind of gal.  But this winter, I resolved  to not just “get through”, but totally enjoy winter.

So we’ve been getting out the skis as much as possible, and ice skating, and sledding, and just playing in the snow.  I am also enjoying the other side of winter, sitting in front of the fire reading, coffee in hand, baking lots of bread,  putting on another pot of soup, and snuggling with my babes.

(and dreaming of summer just a little)
