Too Much Fun

We had a very busy, but fun, day today. We went to Como Zoo and MN Zoo today. We did Como Zoo first. Jayne was scared of all the big animals that were really close to the glass, like the gorilla, lions, bison. It was really small. We are so used to the size of MN Zoo, since we have a membership, that we forget just how small Como is. Then we say the conservatory at Como. We started in the kids area. Jayne loved that. He got to spalsh in the water and crawl through a "tree trunk". He was scared of the animals in there too (they were statues). My favorite display was the sunken garden. There were so many flowers and the fountains were beautiful. Jayne liked looking at the plants and flowers too. By the end he was fast asleep. Then we went to MN Zoo. We saw the new Russia's Grizzly Coast exhibit. It is really nice. We got to see the sea otters, bears and wild boars. We checked out the rest of the outside trail and and the MN trail and finally came home. We will all be sleeping well tonight. What a great way to start our vacation : )

I have so many pics that I don't know what to pick : P ...So here are quite a few to look at:

I got these great shots of the giraffe and made a cute poster out of it. I will be adding this image to my Morgan's Bubble gift shop too.

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
