Two more weeks have flown past and now it’s the holidays.
As usual, we have been doing school.
(Yes, our ‘school’ photos are usually of Math.
That’s when they look the most studious and when I think to take a photo.)
Check out this groovy little stand I got from Ikea.
I absolutely love it.
It cost less than two bucks.
We’ve been using it for everything.
Brace yourself – this is year eleven Math.
Doesn’t it make your head hurt just looking at it.
We’ve been on a bit of a Winston Churchill spree recently.
These are only a couple of the books and dvds we’ve used.
What a fascinating man.
If you haven’t learned about him, you should.
I learned absolutely nothing about him when I was at school.
I wonder if learning about Churchill is scheduled in the Australian National Curriculum.
I doubt it.
As I’ve read aloud to the boys,
Brayden has been dabbling with the Fractiles.
These are just a few of his creations.
This is my favourite.
One of my nieces turned 5 this past fortnight.
Gosh little people grow fast.
She was delighted with the size of our gift.
It wasn’t full to the brim…it simply had a lot of little gifts at the bottom
and they happened to arrive in the post in this giant box.
Last week we spent two mornings at the World Science Festival.
The first morning we attended the “Cool Jobs” lecture
and the second morning we attended “MathMagic” by Dr Arthur Benjamin.
MathMagic was excellent.
(Check out Dr Arthur Benjamin on youtube.)
During the festival, the Science Centre
(what remains open of it during their renovations)
was free so we also popped in there for a quick visit.
All in all, it has been a very busy fortnight.
But, now, it’s the Easter holidays.
Happy Easter everyone.
