Some of our books are still on back order, but that hasn't stopped us from having fun in school. Even though boys are getting older and study pretty complex things in their main curriculum, we still like doing simple things and having fun with them. We did the milk and food color experiment the other day. That was cool. Then we tried it with water and compared the two.
Today we read "The Pink" from Grimm's Fairy Tales. I love those old stories. They're so morbid and creepy, which is right up my boys' alley right now. I don't think I'd read this one before, so it was fun Nathan picked it out for us to read and discuss. I love that we can do that randomly. I see so many of my teacher friends say their hands are tied with what they can and cannot do in their classrooms. That's kind of sad. Since all our materials still aren't in, I'm having the boys do a lot of things together, rather than separated by their grades. We learned about the International Date Line today. We also studied some Australian slang, which is always fun.
