Lunette: Luanar Probe (Part 1)

The first character we are introducing for our new themed shop is Lunette. She is a little robot sent up to gather information from the moon. We designed the plush Lunette by request of our little elephant (Jayne). The prototype is not yet completed, but I can bring you the first installment of Lunette's story.

Lunette: Lunar Probe Young Jayne Morgan had worked all through nap time . He had a big project on his mind and couldn’t wait to finish it that night. He ate a big plate of spaghetti for dinner and had 2 cookies for desert. Mommy and Daddy put him to bed promptly at 8:00 pm and then he waited. When Mommy and Daddy were finally asleep, Jayne crept out into the summer night with his big project.

Jayne had an interest in the sky above and particularly in the moon. He had been working for weeks on a special lunar probe to send into space and find out all about the moon for him. He packed his little probe into the space ship and got ready to count down…

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... Blast Off!

Jayne’s rocket soared into the sky with Lunette the lunar probe inside.

“Come back soon, Lunette!” Jayne called after the rocket. “Bring me lots of rocks!”

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.
