officially became Rivendell and SILK (Spider Intelligent Learning Kingdom) and found a bunch of friends for Boris. Boris may be the first spider to drive a VW bug.
learned that what we were calling inchworms are actually Angle shades which will turn into Owlet moths (I'm not sure how much to trust my App...)
learned that Daddy Long Legs are not actually spiders
learned that centipedes are not insects (and don't survive an afternoon and evening of kid-loving
we collected small rocks and began the process of tumbling rocks (Thank You Joel!!!)
had apricots (1 and 2 halves), meatballs (0), and pretzel-cream cheese-goldfish (5) for the pom-pom challenge
made lots of stuff with the low temp glue gun like a squirrel feeder, a Bo-Bo feeder, a blaster
we pulled seeds from cherries by various methods, and googled methods for actually growing cherry trees. It requires more than putting a seed in some soil...
created art with water colors, droppers, straws and post card sized cards
and then we did a whole bunch of other stuff to.
Have a most excellent weekend. Next week we'll be adding Nova, Rowan and Erik!
