Science Project

Well we had our first science project of the year which was building a 2 liter water bottle rocket launcher and rockets to launch. We did this and learned about newtons 3rd law of motion. 

It was a lot of fun we had a picnic, and M and her family joined us.  The boys decorated a 2 liter bottle for the little ladybug and her birthday, they were cute about it when we went to get the decorating stuff for it they had to get the beautiful stuff because she is a girl.  So it was all pink and soft and had some faux jewels on it too.

PT's Rocket had a funnel on the end of it so it looked more like a rocket to him and it had some playdough in the end.  When that rocket flew it did a great job at going straight up then when it came down the funnel stuck in the ground at a slant, it looked neat.

All the rockets flew and were a fun success!


Here is where I am going to Share those moments that just come whether it be night or day and we take the time to seize every opportunity-

Just a quick chuckle; I was putting my sons down for the night and little Bogan asked for another drink of water, and I said no you have already had a large glass and used the bathroom-he said oh yeah-so I chuckled and said haha your plans to stay awake have been foiled, and he said yeah Mom you folded my plans.

The other night my boys were playing with their legos and when I walked by, PT had made a pyramid and asked me where the little guy was that he had, I said I don't know? And then he showed me he had hidden it under the pyramid-I thought and then grabbed that moment- I went and got out the history book and opened up to the ancient Egypt era when pyramids were built and why it was similar to what he did. He was amazed at the significance. We read and read and learned about them for 2 days.
