Tuesday at home

We got to stay home today!!! Yeah

So, we were able to play catch up on some work and projects we have not been able to get to with all our running around. Kitchen chemistry was the big deal today. It was Mary's project, but everyone was excited to watch the litmus testing. Last week we read the chapter on acids and bases in our chemistry text, but never got a chance to do our experiment. This experiment was particularly interesting for me, as I did a science fair project on household acids and bases when I was in the 3rd grade.

I found the set of red and blue litmus at the local school supply store to be inexpensive and we used clean baby food jars to hold seven different substances found around the house.

Katie is still enjoying using her new math book. She asks to do math every day.

Mary is beginning multiplication in her math book. Today it was so nice she took it outside where it was "quieter".
