Hello everyone! How is your week going so far? Our’s has been pretty smooth and fun. So far no real bumps or craziness. Lol We had such a fun day yesterday! Remember I told you the Pittsburgh Symphony at Heinz Hall has free school shows. Well, that was yesterday. It was so cool! The foyer where we walked in first wasn’t that fancy. Just a few neat things. When they opened the doors to the inner foyer…our boys were in awe at the fancy decor and stairways. The awe continued as the usher took us to our seats in the hall. It is the fanciest place the boys have ever been to. We were the first people in our seats and the boys got to see the musicians slowly come out to tune their instruments and practice before they started. WYH loved seeing the huge harp, but was a bit disappointed he couldn’t hear it when she played. LH was checking out the different drum sounds…especially the big and low sounding kettle drums. WH liked everything and thought the building was amazing. The only thing that could have made it better for them was if we would have been seated in one of the balconies. Lol After the show was over, we walked down the street a bit and checked out a couple buildings and a pretty fountain. Then we headed to the Carnegie Science Center. The boys were in heaven.
They loved everything there! We did everything from learning how water systems work, like plumbing and river dams to how the body works, robots and machines, a laser show, a submarine tour and about natural disasters. They even had an earthquake simulator and all that was only in the first building!
We finished all that fun stuff and headed over to the sports complex. LH, WH and I had a blast on the high ropes course.
WYH loved the spinning thing that would send you flying off if you went too fast. We all had fun playing a giant hockey game together. I have to say it was one of ….if not the best field trip we have ever taken. We look forward to going again! Thank you Pittsburgh for such a wonderful time! We can’t wait to go back!
How is your week going? Anything fun and new? Is it one of those weeks you wish was over already? I hope you are having a good week and I hope ours continues to be good! Have a great day! I hope to see you tomorrow for our first guest on our Facebook page. I will be sharing about KidArtLit starting at 12:15 pm Eastern and then cofounder Julia Linsteadt will be answering questions and showing us another one of their amazing KidArtLit boxes. It will be fun, there will be a giveaway and they made a special coupon code for my followers! I hope to see you all there! Talk to you later, Mandy
Hi out there! What have you all been up to? Anything fun? We have been having a LOT of rain lately. It has been giving us cabin fever big time! We have had a pretty good week in school even without being able to be outside much. We were able to take a little driving trip to a local farm that makes amazing hay sculptures. I’m sure you can tell what story they are from. We also got some yummy apple cider while we were there.
LH has been working in his Thinking Tree journal a lot. Learning how to add and subtract with carrying and borrowing. He has also been studying jellyfish. Did you know? They are their own worst enemy? They eat their own kind more than anything else…talk about a predicament. Lol
WYH has been practicing writing letters and basic addition and subtraction. He has also been doing some painting. Today, he found a bottle of baby powder and decided to squeeze it up into the air to watch all the particles fly all over the house. Lol He loves to watch how things work, react and go together. I wasn’t too upset…thankfully I stopped it before he had it coating everything. Lol
WH has been working on his Zoology part of his science journal. He was studying one of our dogs and writing down his observations. He starts archery club next week. He can’t wait for that. He has been on a homeschool archery program the last four years and really enjoyed it, but was ready to move up to something with a little more substance. He was able to get his own bow and arrows which was really cool.
Ben and I have been busy with all kinds of things. Of course school with the boys. We are also working on starting an Amazon store. There is a whole learning curve, but we are excited about it and hope it brings us some more freedom.
So, what have you been up to? Anything interesting or cool? Any new curriculum you started using and love? Maybe its been a hard week. Let me know what’s been going on and if there is anything I can pray for. I’ll talk to you later! Remember to check out the Facebook Thinking Tree video I did today. You still have time to watch it, comment or ask a question and get in on the giveaway. I hope you have a great night! Mandy
