Making Slime

Fun day with friends! We made slime ~ I can't believe we've never made slime before!! We also made plastic and they worked on a few circuit and wiring projects. Talking about the changes and chemical reactions that occur when making slime and plastic was interesting. Learning is so much fun!!

What a sweet surprise! Last night Mike came home from work bearing hydrangeas and pink roses. He knows I am not a 'red rose' kinda girl ~ he chose well.

Griffin's 13th Birthday

We celebrated Griffin's 13th birthday today! Though the rain changed our original plans, we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful day surrounded by family and friends. (His actual birthday is on the 7th, we celebrated a few days early).

Walked outside to find this guy target practicing with his sling shot. Notice, shorts and no shoes ~ and it's 40° out! Momma sent him in for a jacket, pants and shoes. 'Cuz that's what Mommas do.

Art History Class ~ Pop Art

Griffin's 'Art History Class' studied pop artists today ~ Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Claes Oldenburg. I absolutely love the pop art drawing he made in class! I brought it home and framed it, and now it has a lovely new home on our mantle!

Pumpkin Experiment

It's a natural science experiment. We found this mini pumpkin fizzing on the front porch this morning. It looked like it was ready to burst.

Iridescent Cloud

We spotted an iridescent cloud on the way home! It may be hard to see in the photograph, but we could make out all the colors of a rainbow.

Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

We enjoyed visiting the art exhibits at the VMFA Virginia Museum of Fine Arts as well. We explored galleries of artists and we learned about several different cultures. It was an engaging experience in learning!

Terracotta Army Exhibit at VMFA

We enjoyed a beautiful spring like afternoon at the VMFA Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The Terracotta Army exhibit was very interesting.
