I love it when school just happens.
Remember the small mushrooms we went out into the rain to take photos of last week? Well this is the very next day! Isn't it amazing! I think they are so pretty.
And if you have lots of mushrooms you know you have had tons of rain. That does not deter us from our weekly out door bbq! We grill rain. shine, or snow!
Along with the mushrooms our science this week was all about minerals and crystals. We are growing many varieties. The one below is salt.
Alum ( this one did not work)
Finished Borax Crystals.
Our Rock Table. This table is 2ft by 4 feet. We have rocks from all over the US ( mostly the west) Here the gals are identifying the different groupings.
And no collection would be complete without real fossils. These are so beautiful.
We have two more types of crystals to grow and will start them this week.
We did Saturday school this week as we had a couple of sick days. Flu of some sort. But the gals did an amazing job keeping up and getting it all done.
In the Kitchen we did bulk cooking on Sunday and leftovers most of the week. ( The Lord knew we would be busy!) We are very creative with leftovers. We did the usual baking. Bread, banana bread, brownie cake, lemon cake.
Thrifty find of the week: 16 folding chairs for $15.00! We needed chairs for our monthly BBQs/Bonfires.
Come back next week to learn the history of Mrs Stewart!
