Some of this might not be fun, but here is what we’re up to in school: Hannah is reading a story about George Washington, working on vocabulary, predicate adjectives and simple predicates, multiplication and division and is reading about explorers for History. Grace is working on linear equations and graphing, reading short stories from O. Henry and the like, doing grammar, vocabulary and reading about South America for Social Studies. Bethany is working on kites, rhombi, and squares in Geometry, has a project for Music, is looking at the economy for Government, she only has one more item in English before the semester final and there isn’t much left to do in her other courses before finals.
For lunch we went to the cafe’ and they had jambalaya soup, so good. They did not have the meatball sandwich today, so Hannah had to choose something else to eat (she picked the turkey wrap.) All the food is good there and you get to help out someone else when you donate for your meal, so it’s a win-win. After that we went to the MOA to see the Mute Earth exhibit. The artist contemplated what sound the earth makes, what does rain sound like, how can you describe wind if you can’t hear it or feel it? So, here are some of the sculptures.
The girls liked the Forest room, they tried to sneak past the wires without moving them.
Most of the stuff that ends up here is abstract, but we thought this exhibit was very interesting.
