Our school day

Some days we are productive, some days; not so much! Today was a good day. Some of what happened was:
All about pears- I had some pears that were going bad. I know you are going to be surprised, but I couldn't find all that much about pears:) I did find this site - Usa Pears which, apparently they don't know what to say about pears either as the teacher's section just tells us to "come back soon!" They did, however have some fun sheets to color and fill out. We checked several different types of pears and where they grow at Facts about Pear Trees Needless to say, we won't be growing any here in the south!
And no study about food (at least in our house)would be complete without something yummy to eat. Spiced Pear Bread
In the end, our facination with the pear brought us to this conclusion....
1. Pears are yummy
2. We can't grow them here
3. The Asian pear is also known as and apple pear (which is a good thing because Aidan refused to believe it was a pear--"no, APPLE!")

But wait, that's not all!

We made our fire picture with marbles for our Little House on the Prairie lapbook**note to self** do NOT leave the marbles in a cup to be washed. They will be poured down the sink and you will have to dig them out of the disposal:(Shelby's rag rolling for our Little House experience. Update tomorrow!

Update on that tooth....and the other one

The next day as we were heading out somewhere, I hear Bryce telling Shelby that the reason he lost the tooth and the one next to it was because he was hanging by a rope with his teeth. I asked him why he didn't mention that yesterday and he replied "I didn't feel like it!" I wonder why?!
