Mara is taking an online Chemistry class for college this semester. It has been interesting for her and we find it humorous to see her in goggles and gloves.
Megan enjoys her large collection of dolls (many of which she has purchased herself). She had some of her China ones out last week, fixing them up.
After homeschool co-op last week some of the kids (and I helped some too) tried out some acrobatic stunts that we may use at our Science Circus in May.
Jonathan is carrying quite a load. :-)
Last Saturday we were down in Saint Cloud for Jonathan's robotics tournament. Their robot had troubles and didn't do real well but we had fun there anyway. I think this is a very cool learning program for kids!
For Family night this week we played Jenga. It is a fun and suspenseful game.
Then Ken and I played a couple of games of pegotty. He beat me both times but I gave him more competition then he was expecting so that is good. I made this game board for him years ago. This was a game that he had loved to play with his dad and Granddad but didn't have a board to play on so I found out how his dad's was made and made one for him (with the help of my dad teaching me how to use a drill press).
This is my youngest daughter. :-) And this face is the result of her trying to read all the books in the house.
I came home on Wednesday afternoon - (I had left to take our two oldest to drivers training - we will be having more drivers in this household soon!) - to find Megan busily researching how to make plaster masks online. She had been reading in a craft book and found some instructions but didn't think we had either plaster of paris or petroleum jelly (we had both) and was figuring out what she could substitute them with. She was wanting to make a mask. She just needed a little assistance from me. I didn't have time that day but said that if she got her schoolwork done right away the next morning that I could help her.
So she did. It gives her quite the interesting look! She has painted it some now too and enjoys wearing it around some of the time.
Thursday afternoon Aaron, Megan and I found time to do a little skating while the other kids were at Driver's Ed.
Our friends that live by the skating rink joined us for a little while too.
It was fun to get out.
Then I took Aaron to his 4-H shooting practice. Megan and I watched him shoot.
A violin picture. We have had a lot of music going on around here. I love it!
