A Week With Curious George

This week is Hailey's week with Curious George from school.

Oh, did we mention Hailey has been doing great in her piano lessons?

Funny girl.

Lego Boost

Hailey was feeling jealous that Evan got an after school Lego class for 9 weeks.  He surprised them with Lego's new robotics system: Lego Boost.

Following the building instructions on the Kindle app.

There's the basic system right there with sensors and movable sections.

James loves doing whatever the big kids are doing.

Programming simple move commands.

So while the other 2 started their next build, James played with a motor and remote control.

What do you think they're making?

Playing some music on a Lego guitar.

So there's our first of 5 builds.  Very fun!

The Bees are Swarming

There was a swarm of bees outside our side door.

The bees had moved into our neighbor's compost bin.

So cool, huh James?

Lunch break out in the garden.

Old Fashioned Writing

Old fashioned writing with a quill.

Making their own ink from charcoal and berries.

The Declaration of Independence.

The Constitution.

Birthday Presents

A new book.  A new drawing tablet.

And plenty of bullets to shoot around the house.
