Busy, Busy, Friday!!

Today was another busy day!  For us, Fridays are for finishing any schoolwork that we didn't get to throughout the week- plus Spanish, art and our science experiment.

For Spanish today, we talked about "mi casa."  So, after completing the lesson, L was to go outside and  draw a picture of our house.  He really liked doing this and spend a lot of time getting it  "just right" ;-)

After we completed L's schoolwork for the day, we took off to meet up with friends from our homeschool group at the roller skating rink!  Our local rink has homeschool days once a month and the boys just LOVE going and skating with their friends.

Taking a break from skating!!

Since both the boys are still learning how to skate, we rent a "skate mate"- it helps a ton!

When we got home, B still had science to finish.  We talked about different animal habitats and he had to figure out in his book which animal went with what habitat.  After that, we made an ocean habitat!!  B, who is three, really thought it was fun!

What we used: a clear bottle (we used an old vitamin bottle), water, oil, glitter, blue food coloring, shells, rocks and fish stickers.

Add it all together and hot glue the cap on (with moms help of course)

Voila!!  Our sea habitat!!  B wanted to put in a lot of blue food coloring, so it turned out pretty dark, but he was very excited about it.  It is very pretty when you shake it all up!
