Getting home we ate lunch together then went back to E is for Explore website - solar-energy-balloon-blow-up experiment. We have been studying all types of electricity and power this year and so we pulled out our How Things Work book and read about Solar Power once again before doing this experiment.
After reading about a 'Bug Box' that was partly made by bamboo shoots- he collected some at the river and brought them home to cut and use in his project.
More bug reading...this one had some very interesting and disgusting facts. The kids both were saying 'eww' multiple times...
The afternoon wrapped up with our daughter laying in bed immersed in a book while I gave our son a piano lesson from my old beginner books as a child. Even though he can play by ear he has made the decision that he wants to know how to read music well...so that is what we've been doing for about a week so far- a lesson a day. He is doing well- he is very patient, a good listener and smart....I'm a proud momma.
A beautiful day- outdoors and indoors getting caught up on this Wednesday!
