Life has been a little crazy this last week and has kept me away from the blog. But here's a little of what we've been up to lately:
Our kids participate in Colorado's Options program on Fridays. The Options program is a program for homeschoolers through the public school system. It is a pretty cool program and we have really enjoyed being a part of it.
This past Friday our two younger children, who are in 2nd and 4th grades, had a science fair. We did the experiments and made the presentation boards at home. Then on Friday, David and I were able to be a part of their presentations. It was their first times doing anything like this, and they both did a really good job. But they were so nervous!
Abby's science fair project was about bubbles. Which do you think would fall the ground the fastest...large bubbles or small bubbles?
(The answer is the small bubbles fall to the ground the fastest.)
Evan made a solar oven and we (sort of) made some s'mores in it. We did his experiment outside on a sunny, warm day; however, I think his oven will yield better results when it is a little hotter here in Colorado.
After their day at Options, we headed over to the mall to see the art work of two of our kids. All of our children take art classes at Options. And two of them had their artwork chosen for an art show in the mall.
We had Bryce's collage masterpiece called "Truck Trash" which is very appropriate considering most of this trash came from his truck.
And Abby's teacher entered her cute, little turtle sculpture.
Friday nights are usually our family nights around here. So we ate some pizza and watched a few movies. These three really wanted to have a camp out in the living room. So...
Then the next morning we awoke to snow which fell all day on Saturday...
and it snowed most of the day on Sunday too. I'm not sure how many inches we got, but it was somewhere between a foot to a foot & a half. The little dug out path is what we have to do for our dog once the snow gets too high for him to walk through.
This Louisiana girl still struggles to get used to snow in April (and May)! I don't mind the snow during the winter months, but by spring, I am over it! However, it is Colorado, so we deal with it. Summer will be worth it!
We pretty much kept ourselves inside all day long on Saturday except for the kiddos who ran out here and there to play. I went down to the basement area and did a little crafting and took a super long nap that afternoon. Snow days make me sleepy like rainy days do!
Monday began another week of school for us. We're in the home stretch now with only three and a half weeks left. We can do it!
I hope your week is going well and that you're getting to enjoy some nice spring weather in your neck of the woods!
