Tunes on Tuesday

Today we started with some projects from our history activity book. We worked on a "stone" sculpture. All 3 of us tried it using a bar of soap. Unfortunately, we all had our carvings break, some of us more than once. Poor Alex got very frustrated but calmed down quickly. Morgan's carving turned out the best. We cleaned up all the soap shavings and started on our next project. We made some Hannibal's elephant ears. They turned out very yummy.

Then we worked on book work. Math went quickly and Alex's grammar. Morgan's grammar we worked on together. The sentence diagrams are getting more complicated. Man, it has been too long since I've had to diagram sentences. LOL! So Mommy is relearning alongside Morgan as she learns it. The kids wanted to listen to the Mamma Mia! soundtrack while doing their school work. It was funny to listen to them belt out the songs. Even funnier was watching Morgan make up dances while trying to write answers in her math book. It is a little difficult to write while you are doing arm motions & dancing in your seat. :-) Who would have thought that a 7yo and a 10yo would be singing ABBA songs.

After we were all done with school I met up with a friend so Alex could sleepover. I also stopped for more cold & sinus meds because ick is just going around our house.

We are hoping to find out the results of the bowling tournament tomorrow when we go to the bowling center.

Zoe *LOVES* the Mamma Mia soundtrack too. I like it, but I have to put it down after a while.
