Part 2

Everyone is feeling great about having finished off their projects.

Here's the work.

Willow's horse looking stunning.

Gabriel's cushion.

We've also been working on a play of Brynhild and Sigurd to perform for the family, and finishing off our physics experiments with a week of electricity. There's been lots of other things happening this week, so we've kept it rather low key with school work. Granny is coming to visit this week, plus there's been Willow's singing concert, the pageant and Arden's birthday.

Finishing off geometry we looked at spirals.

The logarithmic or equiangular spiral.

And the Archemidean spiral (this is my version- need to take another picture of Willow's).

I made a soaked grain swiss roll for Arden's birthday. I wasn't sure it would work, but it was fabulous, and everyone loved it.

Loose Ends

We've returned to physics this week, with a week on magnets. There were loads of great experiments, but everyone was most taken with the floating magnet.

Craft projects are nearing competion, and are looking fabulous.

Willow's horse, with some extra detailing.

Gabriel's cross- stitch finished and just needing to be made into a cushion.

We also had our homeschool review this week, and got through it all ok, so that was a relief. It's always nice to have that done for another year.
