Our Weather Unit

 We studied weather in Science and have been taking photos to journal our progress. It's been a very fun unit!
 Zee is using a bike to display wind speeds.
 Here's a cirrus cloud.
 Here's Tzipi playing with electricity and getting to play with fire!
 The National Weather Service exhibit at the Science Spectrum is spread throughout the museum. If you don't pay attention, you'll miss it.
 Cumulus clouds.
 The Science Spectrum.

 Zee had a blast giving the seven day forecast at the children's museum. (Yay for little brothers)
He would make a great meteorologist. I wish that I'd thought to record this with video. He's very funny.

2nd Day

 Here's our second day of school at the nicer library, Godeke. It used to be a Barnes and Nobles.
 Here are various plans from architects showing plans for a new library branch on 75th and Slide! (You heard it here folks!)
 I can't figure out why this photo is sideways. I didn't take it sideways. It's Zee working on his cloud work. We are learning the latin words that label the cloud formations.
I know it's hard to see, but Tzipi is here with her tutor Mrs. Siron working on her reading. Woohoo!

Today was awesome!

First Day of School

 We didn't get to start school on the 26th of August like the other kids in Lubbock as we had to go to Dallas for a follow up (post op) appointment.
 So we started on September 3rd. Pinecone decided to say hi before we left. (like always)
 The kids were fascinated by a moth that held on for our trip to the library. He was a very furry fellow!
 Zee was situated at his own table doing ratios in math, learning about the medieval times and learning about weather forecasting.
 Here I am helping him with his English assignment (that made absolutely no sense). Common Core is for commoners.
 Tzipi was doing math at her table showing her rad math skills, Before, Between, and After.
 Then came lunch and PE: Swimming. Ah yeah!
Nice pool on a warm day.
