We did some table schoolwork...
some science experiments...
and played with toys from Easter.
We played math games with jellybeans, and with pretzel sticks and mini pepperoni bites.
While Katie and James made Butter Pecan cookies, Sam explored Lord of the Rings, Greek and Pre-Algebra.
We experimented with earthworms, and appreciated violets.
The younger kids played hopscotch in the twilight and then Square Dancing for the older kids.
Riding bikes, nature walks, pets, and collections.
Book work, painting and games.
A trip to the nursery for garden supplies.
Katie took the rabbit for a walk, while the boys raced around, playing -some sort of Medieval vs. the future game.
James noticed a bee which sat cooperatively on a towel while we examined it.
Inside, we made a terrarium. Quentin and James filled eggs with candy for an egg hunt at the park with friends.
At lunch Quentin suggested that we talk a leaf walk around the neighborhood now that all the trees are getting their leaves back. No neighborhood walk is complete without a little time spent at the beach. A few things other than leaves, such as pine cones, were collected as well. When we came back, we spread out all the leaves and went about identifying them. Another post card was added to our collection. Quentin helped make dinner -Crispy Baked Breakfast Taquitos with Lime-Chipotle Dip.
