Homeschooling and Life: May 18-June 7, 2014

We have had a good beginning to June, other than the fact that we are dealing with a broken air conditioner in our house right now...yep, since Tuesday. It's not a good thing, to say the least, in 90+ degree weather down here in the south. The good thing is that we do have a window unit and a (purchased yesterday) rolling unit, so we're all just hanging out together in the dining room/living room area. We are trying to make the best of it, but I am failing that a lot of the time! As for other things, we have done some winding down of most of our school subjects as we prepare for "school lite" for summer.  Here's a look at our recent life:

Our first cutout! We found this lapbook here.

Bug enjoys the first book of  his summer reading: Percy Jackson The Lightning Thief.

Bug mixes ingredients in a blender to do a color mixing activity.

Color mixing time

This was cool and fun. I found the idea here.

Next we decided to make ice chalk.











Doodles wrote a paper about adrenaline.

She also created a totem for our family.

We got a jumpstart on next school year's Harry Potter unit study by planting some of the seeds for our carnivorous plants.




Doodles did my makeup...Cleopatra, anyone? 

Baby Girl gets some air! 
And this is how we sleep in the one room with air conditioning!
