We haven't officially started school yet but, have been doing some school like stuff.
We also had fun at Alabama Splash adventure. Sorry no pictures (didn't want to get my phone wet) ha! It was a splash blast for sure!
Last but, not least Precious finally has her license in preparation for her first day of college next week. Whoohoo!! Yeah we cut it really close.
Hope things are getting off to a good start with you and your school year. Check back for updates!

So, like many blogs, ours has lain dormant for some time. I felt led to update things a little bit around here tonight so I decided to start with the most recent events. We have a graduate! Our first little princess graduated from high school at the first of this month. I can't find the words to explain how emotional it is to see your baby walk across that stage. I was proud to say the least. So proud of our Baby Girl as she closes her chapter of homeschool and starts her chapter into college.

For now, Have an extremely awesome day!

I had all intentions to buy My Father's World this year. It was even in the shopping cart but, we did a total 360 and are doing something different. We are using a lot of the Easy Peasy homeschool curriculum this year. I have looked over a lot of it and we love it!
Little P, who is 7 and a very advanced reader doing the third grade material on the site and working from her Spectrum math book. We are also using a lot of worksheets from Enchanted Learning for her as well since she loves busy work. I will tell you what things we have done with the other ones later.
Today we learned about tall tales. The kids loved the story of John Henry. Here is the video they watched that kept buffering because our internet does not like storms.

Last week went by way to fast. Lots of schoop, lots of work for me. We got a little dusting of snow which was exciting until it melted a couple of hours later. On Sunday we participated in The community Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. program. The kids all enjoyed the program which included a drill team performance, selections by The MLK choir, a very moving key note speech by Ms. Juanita Gambrill Floyd, and the presentation of the drum major award to Mr. Mack Turner. The program was followed by a brief reception, after which we went and hung out with the local SCA group and watched some fighting, tended a fire, and had a conversation with friends about racoon parts and hunting. Hope.this week turns out not as busy but, fun. Untl my next post, have a good one.

The results Of The naked egg are in! Tre' was the winner with an hypothesis that the shell would be soft. The shell was pretty spongy to the touch and hard to bust amazingly. It sort of had the same consistency as a balloon. The experiment was pretty neat! Before we busted it open we measured. It opened up a conversation about membranes for the little ones and we watched a couple of youtube videos of other experiments with the naked egg. Big P and Tre' and I had a conversation about diffusion and osmosis, hypertonic vs. hypotonic solutions, and permeable and semi-permeable membranes.
I used gloves on this one because I didn't want vinegary hands. The discoloration of the liquid and the end product of the egg are brown because I used apple cider vinegar instead of regular white vinegar because it's what I had in the cabinet. Well, I'm off to bed, I'm so sleepy. I hope your day was great! I'm ready to get ready for another one tomorrow.
