Here are the rest of the pictures from October!
It’s hard to see in this picture, but one thing they’ve done to stabilize this cliff face is to put black netting over the loose rocks. You can see it on the left side of the top.
These are five-ton blocks of concrete—and a slip pushed them over!
Mr. Intellectual is doing a course called “Thinking Like an Engineer.” He’s loving it, especially the experiments. In this one, he had to pile books an inch above the floor, using one sheet of printer paper. You’ll have to wait till I write the review of the course to see how tall a stack he achieved!
Mr. Sweetie built this stack of animals, and then took 16 pictures of it!
This was the latest dump find. Mr. Intellectual is loving his “new” roll-top desk!
We got out the microscope one day to look at some algae. It was still out several days later when I was cutting up meat, so we looked at that, too.
The first picture is skeletal muscle; the second is cardiac muscle. Mr. Intellectual had just been studying about these muscles a few days before, so this was a timely opportunity.
Mr. Imagination and Little Miss spend most of the morning playing together while the bigger boys do school. They got out the rocking horse one day and had great fun on it for a long time.
Little Miss can spend hours playing with these tiny animals. She loves sorting them.
One day, Little Miss wanted to paint, so I gave her a brush and a bucket of water and told her to paint the house.
Mr. Imagination was delivering quite a fiery sermon to his brother and sister! I enjoyed listening, while I picked lettuce nearby and pretended not to pay attention.
