There has been so much going on lately that I need to combine everything in one post since I am not one of those people that has time to post everyday. The day after we went to the Landis Valley Museum I took the kids to the Allentown Symphony to hear Gustav Holst's The Planets accompanied by a spectacular video and introduction to each planet by an astronomer. It isn't too often that you can check off science and fine arts at the same time!
This past weekend Christian and the kids performed in our church's children's musical. We enjoyed doing this with the kids last year but this year there was only one adult role. That worked out though since I don't know if I could have done it with the baby. Aiden had the main role as Jonas and Christian was the nutty professor.
I think he does the nutty professor look pretty well. Don't you think?
We celebrated Aiden's 9th birthday yesterday. He had a great time spending the night with my parents and visiting Battleship New Jersey. He has been quite busy playing with his Snap Circuits and Flexeez ever since.
Today we visited our favorite castle Glencairn for a special home school day. We really enjoyed watching the glassblower demonstrating his fascinating art.
Grace has been trying her eye at photography.
Nice shot Grace!
The first person who knows why I titled my post as I did, WITHOUT GOOGLING IT, wins a copy of my favorite book. You know you want it. It's a classic. If you already have that book, which there is a good chance you do, then you can win a copy of my second favorite book instead. Remember, no cheating!
