HSMJ - Scientific Adventures and Fireworks

In my life this week…
My mom discovered a book written about the life of my great great great great grandparents. I have ordered a copy and am looking forward to reading it.
I'm still trying to get my act together and join The Pebble Pond Beauty Captured challenge ... I was extremely frustrated about a photography course that was touted as being Free turned out to be an advertisement to sign up after the first week...
In our home school this week…
  • This was week four of our five week cycle.  Sir N was sick for three out of the five days.  So we will do a light school week next week to make up for what we missed this week even though it's supposed to be our holiday week.
  • We are enjoying Charlottes Web and Seed Sowers Gospel Planting Adventures 
  • Science this week was a blast.  We went across town (an hour and a half drive one way) to play in a highschool science lab!
  • We had heaps of fun making and playing with HexaFlexagons

    So much to comment on!
    How awesome to have a book written about your ancestors!

    I got behind quickly with radiate, and then was sick. So that is a shock! will check out your other link or as you suggest, start another challenge:)

    As one who married young I really appreciated the post.

    Well no doubt I have a very personal hope that labour does not get in. I mean my question is, what next? Centrelink cut? and anyway obviously we are no longer a free country!! Not at all.

    Anne Marie Miller's post had me worried, I'll be getting of the computer and talking and the kids will once again say, "Mum what have you been reading this time?!" These posts always freak me out which is why our computers are all in a central shared room.

    Just checked out Pebble Pond, sounds good, I might join that and Che and Fidel and between the two focus on the areas I want, maybe..

    1. I know what you mean Erin. Being married young people tend to look down on you ...

      :) I'm still trying to discover my style of photography will have to look into the other two you mention

  2. What beautiful fireworks! My hubby did a small show this last weekend at our house for my 30th birthday! What a great week! Stopping by from

  3. Wow! What a great list of links to click through. I can't wait until I have time to read through them this evening!

  4. Thanks for sharing the video regarding the smartphone picture privacy risk. I had seen that before quite awhile ago but I forgot about it. Anyway, I was glad for the reminder.

  5. Lot so great links to check out. What a full week you have had.

  6. You make me tired just looking at his list! How do you find the time? Thanks for all of the great links!

    1. that's probably why I need a rest every fifth week :) You're welcome.

  7. WOW! What a week, what a list! My husband used to live in Australia (he also lived in New Zealand for a couple of years.) Anyway, you've got some interesting links for me to look through!

    1. :) It's amazing how many have spent time down under. I hope he enjoyed it

  8. So many great links! Thanks!

    The book about your ggggrandfather sounds neat!
