What started out as a couple Mom's who weren't thrilled with their music program - so we got together once a month to take turns teaching it - has evolved to a very fun day for the kids. Music has been "cut" from the program, but we now do art and science projects, and our group is growing. The other project that I didn't get a picture of - but wish I had, was sewing quilt squares, as a part of learning about travel west and the patterns they put into their quilts to tell a story. From what I hear the boys actually did better than the girls, but they don't want to admit they enjoyed it.This day they were learning about architectural elements to buildings. They had to identify and then put together a building with, columns, pediments, friezes, etc... they were sad to not get to put a cupola on - anybody have to pull out a dictionary for that one? :)
Mak and Noah have become good friends (and Noah's Mom is our fabulous art teacher).
Chatham and Abby, are also good friends, but they are sometimes unsure how to handle it because of the boy/girl situation.
