Solar Systems, Abrakadoodle, and Sparkle

Oh, we did put up some new pictures the beginning of March after my last post. 🙂

We’ve been working on Astronomy for Science. Tim’s new telescope came at just the right time and they’ve been checking out everything from Saturn to nebula’s when the weather allows. Piper made a great picture of our solar system including the Great Asteroid Belt:


On Friday we went to the Museum of Science and got to see a 3D movie about Mars and the Spirit mission. We’re currently working on a lego Mars rover. Very cool! It’s for 10 year olds, but Piper is really doing a good job. I pick out the pieces (there are about a million, well maybe 900) and she follows the instructions and puts them together. I’ll try to post a picture when we complete the masterpiece.

This is a picture she did in her Abrakadoodle class. She seemed to enjoy this and has done several different variations since the class.


This is Sparkle. We just did her Spring sand change and she now has glow-in-the-dark sand. I don’t think she wanted her picture taken since she seemed determined to hide behind her grape vine.
