We have been very busy these last few weeks.
Science classes where we are studying the cell have been lots of fun!
My class was about the plant cell. We made our own onion slides to look at through the microscope.
This was a lot of fun. We saw the nucleus in each cell.
We also survived 4 earthquakes!!!
Yes, I said 4!!!
These paintings fell off the wall along with some other frames that broke and
some things fell over.
The first, and biggest quake, was VERY scary!
The kids and I were home and I honestly thought to myself, "This is the big one!"
But it ended by the time we ran into the hallway. The epicenter was just a couple of miles away, which explains why we felt it so strongly. I have lived in California my entire life and been through many earthquakes. This one scared me more than any other! Goose and Binky were terrified!
The second one scared them even more. Poor things!
We have definitely been talking about earthquake safety and preparedness all week!
This little guy has been having lots of fun with Cody the dog.
They really have fun together.
I am surprised at how much Cody loves him!
And no, we don't have a name for him yet. We can't agree on anything so far.
More cell stuff with Shrinky Dinks and a mitosis flip book.
Binky loves snuggle time!
I finished this scarf! It is a Christmas gift for someone special!
And we've been enjoying the season with candles,
cups of tea, baking, and leaf collecting.
