We are a creative homeschooling family of 3. I have homeschooled my 2 boys from the start and we do lots of unit studies and get out into our beautiful part of the world as often as we can.
As the boys are getting older and we are getting busier I find I am posting less about our journey but will continue to update occasionally.

Galaxies

Today we learned how galaxies are continuosly expandingThey are getting bigger and bigger
and eventually they explode.
Mr11 has a smart new haircut.

Mr almost 7 made a rocket
and tried to power it with a balloon
and he made some beautiful galaxies with glitter.

Looks like fun, learning about the universe is a good one for hands on learning. I have been a bit slack on the homeschool front lately. Must get motivated. Norty me!

Love the hair cut, very handsome.

have you tried the balloon powered cd hovercrafts? you attach a pop top lid to an old cd with bluetack, blow up baloon, stretch it over lid and let it fly over a hard smooth surface ie. table

Louise I have not tried your baloon powered hovercraft but it sounds great and I think my boys would like it, is a pop top lid from a water bottle?
