G3 W10 Transpiration

I forgot to do all the "letti.blogspot.com" watermark thingies, as well as the drop shadow effect, but I had already uploaded the photos and whatnot, so I thought, "Oh Well'".

Whenever we have a science lesson that incorporates some lab / hands-on work, you LOVE it! 
Oct 23 G3 W 105
You want to be involved in every step of the procedure,
Oct 23 G3 W 106
and our results were pretty awesome :)
Oct 23 G3 W 107
There was also a perfect day for kite-flying!
Oct 23 G3 W 108
This was the first time you spent 99% of the time flying the kite by yourself for like, more than 15 minutes at a time.
Oct 23 G3 W 109
In fact, we might have been out for half an hour or more.
Oct 23 G3 W 1010
Also, hardly a day goes by without goofy silliness,
Oct 23 G3 W 1011
which WE LOVE!!!!!!

G3 W9 Getting Ready for Halloween

Oh yeah, we're into the whole Halloween vibe.
Oct 20 G3 W9
But we try to learn something as well, hidden beneath interesting titles, and of course, then there are the Weird School books :).

Oct 20 G3 W93
School is still going strong. I think it is not as stressful when I think about how we have year round school, and so even if we are behind "regular school", in terms of chapters or units, we'll be okay at the end.
Oct 20 G3 W94
Oh, and you have been asking for THIS costume for months now :)

G3 W8 Making Friends

Daddy and I are always amazed at the number of books ( thousands and thousands, I'm sure ) that you have read by now, compared to when WE were kids. 
Oct 08 G3 W8
I'm not too sure about Daddy's situation when he was a child, but when I was a child, we never went to the library.  Perhaps because it was because the local town library was poorly stocked and hardly had anything when I was growing up.
Oct 08 G3 W81
Also,  for some reason, I can't seem to remember if there actually WAS a library at the primary / secondary school I attended.  I know that the school I attended in Upper Secondary had one, but I think it was very underutilized.  Plus, the teachers never actually encouraged us to borrow and read books back then, for some reason.Oct 08 G3 W82
Since the weather started getting cooler, we have brought out some of the "Cold Weather Items", and one of them is your little Angry Birds blanket, which you put to good use while we watched Journey 2 :)
Oct 08 G3 W83
And then there was the time when the Golden Fish got to swim in the Golden Yolk.
Oct 08 G3 W84
I know, I know, it is ( was ) October. These guys were everywhere, and you never want to miss a photo op. Ever.
Oct 08 G3 W85
And THIS was me doing a DIY microscope for Science, seeing how we didn't have one.  It was fairly easy.  We were trying to see the individual plant cells using a very thin one-cell-thick onion skin.  I rigged a flashlight over a plastic container, 
Oct 08 G3 W86
and then played around with the zoom feature of the cell phone camera.  Pretty impressive stuff, I might say.
Oct 08 G3 W87
And although you are the only child and are homeschooled, you are never afraid of making friends everywhere you go.  We saw this little girl over at the Baptist Church indoor playground, and in no time, you were running around, playing Hide And Seek and Catch with her.
Oct 08 G3 W88
She played a mean game of catch.
Oct 08 G3 W89
The girl had Mad Skillz.

G3 W7 Suavity

We continue our quest to read the My Weird School series..

Oct 01 G3 W7

And we received some of the Interlibrary Loans we had requested, namely some Graphic Novels :)

Oct 01 G3 W71

We also borrowed and read books about how children had or did not have access to schools and books in other countries.

Oct 01 G3 W72

You have been enjoying Andy Griffith's treehouse series as well,

Oct 01 G3 W73

and I introduced you to a Malaysian author/graphic novelist, Lat.  You enjoyed his books more than I had anticipated, seeing how the themes and settings are so different from all you've ever known..

Oct 01 G3 W74

We borrowed some books that tied in to some Science we were learning, 

Oct 01 G3 W75

and read a host of other very interesting books.

Oct 01 G3 W76

🎶 "This is the way we do our work, do our work, do our work" 🎵

Oct 01 G3 W77

We had to go get some propane, and you asked if you could get out to observe.

Oct 01 G3 W78-001

You love silliness, and so, Wile E Coyote certainly qualifies :)

Oct 01 G3 W79

Favorite spot in Sam's.

Oct 01 G3 W710

Never let a photo op slip by.

Oct 01 G3 W711

We stopped by McMurray University during their Homecoming celebrations, 

Oct 01 G3 W712

and walked around soaking in the atmosphere.

Oct 01 G3 W713

Oct 01 G3 W714

Oct 01 G3 W715

Oct 01 G3 W716

Oct 01 G3 W717

Oct 01 G3 W718

Last but not least, my smooth, suave, chill little dude.

G3 W6 Goofiness Galore

( as if a week goes by without goofiness )

as evidenced by all the Dav Pilkey books borrowed from the library.

Sept 25 G3 W6

Sept 25 G3 W61

and Mo Willems books.

Sept 25 G3 W62

AND Andy Griffiths.

Sept 25 G3 W63

But we still try to be diverse :)

Sept 25 G3 W64

Sept 25 G3 W65

Sept 25 G3 W66

THESE shots were right after you solved a Math Tangram Problem and was rolling around in exhilaration.

Sept 25 G3 W67

SCIENCE!!!

Sept 25 G3 W68

We learned about Quotations and Dialogue,

Sept 25 G3 W69

and you had some pretty funny ideas for the worksheet :)

Sept 25 G3 W610

Sept 25 G3 W611

Sept 25 G3 W612

Sept 25 G3 W613

One day, you inadvertently dressed yourself up like Dr. Horrible.

Sept 25 G3 W614

and did some Dot Painting,

Sept 25 G3 W615

and then there was the time you tried to balance a package of Pinto Beans on your head,

Sept 25 G3 W616

and tried to right the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
