Summer 2015, Week 10 Final Week!

#1 - Field Trip - BYU

BYU's Museum of Art wisely replaced (I hope permanently) the terra-cotta statue that used to reside in the entryway with this illuminating, rainbow piece made up of thousands of strands of string.  Every step, every view around the lobby is brilliantly diffused in color, constantly changing and moving.  I hope it stays...









#2 - Hike - Mom got tired.  We went to the Thanksgiving Point Museums instead.

#3 - Science Project  - Ice Cube Lift



#4 - Art Project  - Egg Geodes

These were pretty dang cool because I originally thought there was no way my little kids were going to be able to crack open the top of an egg, empty it and clean it without destroying the fragile shell.  Not only did Pretty Girl do it flawlessly - Bubbs was the same!!

As an added bonus, this experiment fueled my oldest boys imagination for the upcoming science fair.  Don't be surprised if salt is involved in some wild way...






#5 - And Then We Did a Little of This 

Pretty Girl started Activity Days!  She has amazing leaders and a darling bunch of girls surrounding her.  She's thrilled.  Mom's thrilled.  The next 4 years are going to be awesome.  



And we had a few tea parties...



And finally - there was a lot of biking action!
