it was horridly hot at soap's today, & that's where we hold hogwarts classes. the shorties did an endothermic experiment - made juice slushies by surrounding their jars of juice with ice & rock salt. the experiment was a success, & they enjoyed the results. sadly there were no endothermic pina coladas for the professors to enjoy.
this week has been busy, & the weeks ahead look to be even more so. the 100s luncheon was a huge hit with the shorties. they proudly shared their projects, & showed great enthusiasm when looking at the others'. when elvie decides to work again, i can show you some of his drawings. & when pigs fly...
yesterday the r&s group met at the nhm for preview day of their butterfly pavilion. it was such a lovely outing. we go many times a year, & never does being surrounded by all those butterflies fail to amaze me. a news crew was there, & interviewed one of my r&s shorties! she did wonderfully well, & sweetly tried to introduce thehobbit to the news crew. to say he wanted nothing to do with cameras & newsmen would not begin to describe his flight! my boy became a blur. he did watch the news clip later, & thought seeing his buddy on tv was "so neat!" after the butterflies we had a picnic in their rose garden. if only every homeschooling day was that magical, & peaceful.
tomorrow we're closing the 100s project by going to see a play based on the book. i am looking forward to it, i just hope the theatre has air-conditioning. that's all for now. i'm off to get some ice
