Tuesday 9/17/14 guitar, science experiments, yard work and gum machines, day 260/365…

I never should have said in a recent past post that life has settled into a routine with the kids in school and I hope to have things to write about. After posting that I immediately got writers block.

The kids are in school. It is going well so far…Maggie had her first test in guitar class and passed. She can do the scales. Outstanding!!! Beth is doing experiments in science class. They were given eggs and some other items and needed to make a case around the egg so that when they dropped it from about four feet it wouldn’t break. They did an experiment today about the moisture content of popcorn. I am not sure how they did the measuring of the moisture, but I do know that they measured the cooking oil and popped the popcorn. Beth talked a lot about the popcorn experiment. She thought that it was cool.

We are in the lull before the storm. Summer is over and the homework has started, but there isn’t a lot of homework yet. We are holding our breath waiting for the calendar to fill up.

We started the fall yard work. We cut back the front hedges, and trimmed the flowers and the bushes in the back yard. Our yard isn’t big, but it always takes longer that we thought it would. It is best when William cuts the front hedges. When I cut them, they always look like eye brows.

Here is a gum machine that my kids like.

I need help. Does anyone know how to add “followers” to WordPress? I can’t find where to get the code. If anyone knows, please leave me a comment. I will really appreciate it.
