Snapshot Summary: April 12-18 {week 29}

Science experiments were started and others were watched.
Math games were played.
Handwriting and painting were practiced.
Fables were read.
A garden was started.
Post cards were mailed.
Projects were shared.
Memories were made.
Asparagus was steamed.
Feta Cheese and Spinach was wrapped in Phyllo dough.
Fish was seasoned and wrapped in parchment paper.
A Greek dinner was eaten in commemoration of our finishing our study of Ancient Greece.
Besides reading lessons on the computer, we explored chemical weathering with experiments. We read about and mapped the Scythian territories. They are really able to orient things since we have been mapping the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers and the Mediterranean Sea from the beginning, the Nile River since early on this year. We have added the Black Sea to their maps recently. I am hoping that by the end of the year they can sketch out the area from memory. Today it was raining, so Katie suggested to the boys an outside-in-the-rain-explore. The rain was causing some of the petals to fall, so that it almost seemed like it was raining petals. Quentin found treasures, because even in the rain, treasures from nature can be found if you look.
While Sam and Steven were at the doctor's, we worked on writing, and reading and the Celts in history. The boys had a lot of fun do exercises outside. After the exercises, we looked at all the plants around us and how they are growing. Then, back inside, we played games. We received our fifth postcard, from Washington DC this time. Katie made Indian Spiced Pork Skewers for dinner.
Momma was not well today, so Daddy took them to the park to play with friends. Katie seasoned the Spicy Honey Chicken for Steven to grill, and we are having Pi-r-squared for dessert.
Momma still not feeling so well. Sam had an opportunity to go roller skating with friends, so Steven took him to meet them. We stayed home and found our own adventures.
A nature scavenger hunt with Katie. With the beach so close, its not hard to convince Sis that the walk should go by there.
A run to town to pick up Sam, and a stop off at our favorite garden center  to finish off what we need for the garden.
Treats at Rita's afterwards.
The story of Hannibal and his elephants.
More planting...
and playing.
White bread made.
