Seeds and Other Lessons

We are homeschooling apace! All kinds of fun things happening. We have been watching our mushroom kit bloom (Thank you Aunt Sheila!!!), talking about living on a planet, testing out reading maps, chanting the Spanish vowels, and revving up for learning about the ancient Mesopotamian culture. Life is busy and I am not sure I have entirely enough arms but I am slowly learning little tricks and beginning to visualize a Pom nap schedule emerging which is a really helpful thought. Love watching the boys learn and wonder and puzzle things out. Vicarious enjoyment is a really good invention.

Our big science project this week was a seed collection excursion and then the assembly of a collage of the goods. Artist mama got a little enthusiastic about the whole collage part and made it mixed media when she pulled out the pens and watercolors. Anybody know the name of the weed that grew that beautiful pointy round seed-head in the middle.
