Term 3

Term 3 saw us complete some interesting projects from over the year.
We finally got the skateboard deck put together.
Our two broken rotary phones were pulled apart to get one working rotary phone.  (These are a lot of fun to examine....how the dialer works, how the bell works,etc).

We mad a new colour-blended version, just because we could, and the front of the green had broken a bit.

We worked on means in maths.  Arden understands them pretty well these days (and usually like to complain about them..."How useful are these things?..."  I must admit I agree. )  But it was fun helping Irving work them out together.

We now have a pokemon gaming obsession happening around here.

Plus we did some botanical studies. 

Including growing our own mushrooms.

Also a bit of sprouting.

Enjoying the view from King's Park.

Down to river level.

Arden's sketches from our nature walk.

Arden working on a pattern.

Irving trying out compass and protractor.

Some scrabble fun and a bit of teamwork, since Irving's still just learning to read.

A night at the Opera with the older kids.  Our view into the Orchestra pit at Dracula. 

Irving and I working on sewing the letter 'Q'.

Plus some things I've been doing.  A velvet dragon pocket.

Pyjama pants for summer.

Trying machine corded embroidery, as directed from my ebay win, singer illustrated dressmaking guide.
