We looked at the apple slices that we had put in various substances to see which one would work the best in preserving the apple. The above slice was the winner, which we will reveal the substances that cured it on Sunday for Science Sunday.
We also changed the substances for fresh batches as several of them became wet from the juices being drawn out of the them.
We printed out some soldiers from one of my favorite sites, Junior General, and the boys reenacted Egyptian battles (rules for Battle of Kadesh).
This week Quentin worked on circles in geometry and James worked on decimal fractions.

Quentin has started his own blog, Quentin's World, for his Playmobil stories and his other creative endeavors. If you could drop over and leave a comment, he would appreciate it.
What else did we do this week?
(All of these next pictures were taken by Katie.)
Katie made a spy mission for Quentin and James. They had to find clues around the house, decide which clues were false clues left by enemy spies...
which were put together to form a map...
which led them down to the beach...
to retrieve a package...
which turned out to be a tin of (Quinny's favorite) cookies Katie had made for them.
Speaking of the beach, it has been beautiful this winter.
See all the ice?
Oh and a reminder, National Parks have free entrance days, in case you want to take advantage of them.
