Summer school

Summer math...daughter + makeup + dad = scary clown

Full grown cystal tree. Evaporation, and liquids to gas!

First step in growing crystals. Summer science, yee haw!

Tents in the living room during afternoon showers.

What a day we had today. I was worried when demands for breakfast were being made before the sun was shining, and whines were heard about a messy bed...but to my great delight cereal and a short prayer for peace got us back on track. I cleaned a few closets, shelves and the school room, and the girls were BUSY.

They did a fun art project, we had our short science lesson on phases of matter, and evaporation which resulted in a great crystal tree. This is quick and fun for the kids if you want to study crystals. It was a day of rain, and so since we were cooped-up we made tents in the living room. They packed half of their belongings to go 15 feet down the hall. I loved it because they cleaned it all up by themselves. Yahoo!

Steve came home and Olivia got ahold of him while I was cooking dinner and the result was a little scary. I would not say it was one of his most handsomest moments, but he was tops in Daddy world.
