Lunette: Lunar Probe (part 3)

Lunette reached down to pick up one last rock when she saw something move from the corner of her eye. She jerked up and looked for a very long time. Then, when she had nearly given up looking, she saw a bit of green. Lunette was scared. She hadn't expected to find anyone else up here on the moon. Clearly her briefing had only covered the basics, there is the moon and bring back rocks.

The green thing was getting closer. It continued to move from behind one rock to another. Lunette was frozen with fear. There wasn't anyone to help her and there really wasn't anywhere to go since her ship was quite a way off now. Just then, the green thing came out from behind a close rock.

"Hello, I'm Bogart," said the creature. He was about the same size as Lunette and very round. He was not armed and did look friendly, so Lunette waved ever so slightly. "Where did you come from?" Lunette pointed at the earth, a small ball in the distance. Bogart continued, "I haven't seen anyone around here before. I came here from my home planet because I really love rocks and hadn't gotten any from here yet. My space craft crashed and now I am stuck here."

Lunette could tell how lonely poor little Bogart had been. He was all alone up here on the moon. It was true that there were some amazing rocks on the moon, but they aren't very good company. Lunette came up with a plan. She pointed to Bogart, then to her ship, and then to earth.

"You want me to go with you to earth," He asked. Lunette nodded. Bogart thought a moment and nodded in return. He really didn't want to stay alone on the moon forever and Lunette was such a nice robot. The two new friends walked hand in hand to the ship and took off toward home. Lunette looked out the window as the earth grew closer and knew that Jayne would be thrilled with the rocks she had gathered and they would have many fantastic adventures with their new friend.

The end.

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.
