We've taken a break from much structured schooling the last couple of weeks, but we've kept plenty busy, even doing a few crafts related to Halloween and some cooking together. Here is a brief photojournal to show you what we've been up to.
First, we took an overnight field trip to West Virginia to the National Radio Astronomy Observatory.
|We saw the Green Bank Telescope, the world's largest movable radiotelescope, did some workshops, and stayed in a bunkhouse overnight with friends from Raw Learning.|
|Lily made stomp rockets at the observatory while her brother looked at the sun and listened for radio signals.|
|We spent some time with good friends.|
Before leaving West Virginia, we took a ride on a steam locomotive.
|We took advantage of an unexpected October snowstorm.|
|We carved pumpkins and even made pumpkin faces to hang in the window (not pictured).|
|We celebrated Halloween in cute and scary ways.|
|We celebrated Lily's 5th Birthday.|
|We made Italian cannoli.|
So, even when we're not "doing school," you can see we keep busy and keep learning. We'll do a little more learning in our books this week and, I'm sure, a lot more out of them ;)
