|March 5-12, 2015|
This week began with snow and ice. It was really beautiful, but I am really ready for spring now.
We had to do some remodeling to our kitchen to make room for this new stove. (We had a wall oven and stove top before.)
At co-op this week James and Quentin earned pins for answering 20 trivia questions correctly.
The kids have been working on their Mission Possible tasks. Alex's task was to make three postcards and mail them to Aunt Brenda this week. He loved the task! She also mailed him three postcards on the same days.

Alex made another painting this week, this time of a fireworks scene.

The play rehearsals are going well and we have a place (same theater as last year) and date (May 8) for the play.
There are a million and one details to work out, but fortunately I have a lot of moms working with me on it.

I am also teaching a model rocketry class and we made clinometers so that we can do triangulation and measure the height the rockets go.
In math this week we studied triangles in preparation for the triangulation. We also covered Pythagorean theorem.
We studied Brazil this week in our World Geography and Culture studies and had this lovely Black Bean Stew with Mango Salsa to celebrate finishing up.
We learned about the Magyars and Bohemians (896-1273).
Don't forget that Saturday is National Pi Day.
