Summer update…

It has been a long time again since I posted last time… ( I am not going to apologize this time…:-)…life was/is busy!), I thought I’d post a few pictures of what we have been busy with.




Building a tornado in a bottle. I gave my son a library book about kinetic experiments and this is what he came up with!

Practicing survival skills in our own yard! Learning happens everywhere and all the time! 🙂

Excuse the layout in this post. I tried to arrange the pictures better, but somehow they did not cooperate with me…;-), so I will just leave it the way it is.
