Enjoy a glimpse into our kids' everyday learning!
A very happy boy with a book
Reading clues in a scavenger hunt
Writing letters to the grandmothers
A chess match
Playing with shapes
Um … measuring things?
This is pretty hobo, huh? Putting the kids to work pounding in
railroad ties at the Museum of History and Industry.
Exploring their heritage!
Boarding Rosa Parks's bus at the Henry Ford Museum
Scanning for fingerprints with a CSI kit
Mikko's idea: Weaving an orb web through the living room with yarn.
The cat wasn't sure what to make of it.
Brothers making flubber
We put the cats through Kitty College. Only one graduated.
Watching a squid dissection at the aquarium.
Mikko got right up close and stayed after to ask a ton of questions.
Enthusiastically investigating friction at the science museum
Up close and personal with the fish
Learning fire safety from a firefighter
This boy's got some sharp (ha!) knife skills.
Learning how to put together furniture
Cooking his own grain-free cupcakes
Learning to solder at the Science Expo
Health & Fitness
Bouncing down the track at the gymnastics playground
Hiking through the grounds of the waste treatment plant (no, really)
Exploring super low tide with friends
Going to the library for German DVDs
Singing the German song I composed about riding the bus
Reading through books together like Die kleine Raupe Nimmersatt.
Arts & Music
Directing his own movie at the Science Expo.
(We ended up buying one of these kits.)
An impressive foam mural
A creation from parent-child pottery class
Crafting his own musical instruments
I'm pretty sure the Fumigation Super Dragon counts as art.
You can see Mikko's especially strong on Science & Life Skills,
since he tells me he's going to be a Ninja Scientist.
