HSMJ of sharks, drawing class and pirates

In my life this week…
I read a really interesting article this week written by a wedding photographer.  I'm so glad I did this as I have a much deeper understanding of the difficulty facing these photographers by us amateur photographers and cellphone users at weddings.  Rather thought provoking I would encourage you to read and share this far and wide Guest Photographers or: Why You Should Have an Unplugged Wedding.
I have also enjoyed learning to draw tangles this week. Some have been a little bit of a challenge though.

In our home school this week…
  • Sir N is currently wanting to know as much as possible about Dinosaurs so we watched a couple of YouTube clips on them.  
  • Drawing Dinosaurs
  • We've been working on his time line book this week adding figures from Homeschool in the Woods.
  • We've been enjoying Logic of English this week
  • Recorder practice and lessons.  
  • Week two of DVD drawing class with Graham Braddock
  • Continued our memorization of Philipians 28
  • Watched some YouTube clips on Pirates  
  • We went to iMax and watched  Great White Shark 3D
  • Listened to Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel by Maestro Classics.  Beautiful.  We both enjoyed this immensely.
  • We built a kaliedescope
  • Made some THM chocolate.  I like it but Sir N is not too impressed.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…
Gosh I found this really ineterresting to watch.  It's a YouTube clip of pendulum waves.


The Citadel Physics Department Wave Pendulum is a little more visually interesting as you see the wave from the front with colour pool balls.
