    Beautiful light, my oldest, and the dog

    Friday, March 21st, 2014

    my boyThere is a beautiful spot in our yard that needed pictures taken in it.

    I grabbed the closest willing kid and set up my camera on the tripod.

    laughThese were all taken with a remote.

    I have the remote set to delay so I am not pushing the button during the picture.

    Building Solar Oven’s ~Embrace the Camera

    Thursday, March 20th, 2014


    Here is my shot for the day!

    Check out Emily and Ashley’s blogs to see what “Embrace the Camera” is about.

    solarsciencekitWe built this solar oven from a science kit as well as one from a shoebox.

    We modelled the shoebox oven after the Pizza Box Solar Oven found here.

    panelsMy youngest built the one from the kit.

    glueWhile my oldest built his from scratch.





    shoeboxI cut out the top flap for the shoebox and helped tape the aluminium foil as well as the ziplock bag we used for the top.

    packingtapeI added packing tape to try and keep the stick from moving around.

    journalThe boys wrote down what they thought would happen in their science journals.

    startWe put pieces of cheese in them and waited to see how long they took to melt.

    waitingThis is how the boys killed time waiting.

    cheesemelt45mins later the shoebox won!!!


    donelaterIt took the kit oven ten more minutes to melt.

    This was a fun easy project!

    I am hoping we can try popping popcorn or making s’mores on the next sunny day as well as think up ways to improve our oven.

    Have you ever made a solar oven?

    What did you use to make it?

    I would love to make one like this!

    Mornings, Pipe Cleaners, and Embrace the Camera

    Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

    morningAshley and Emily are doing the Embrace the Camera challenge this week, go check it out.

    Mornings keep changing around here.

    There was a time when mornings meant a quiet moment with my youngest curled up in my lap.

    He rarely does that any more.

    smilesHe wanted to show me what his man he made out of pipe cleaners could do.

    He can play with something simple like pipe cleaners for hours.

    pipecleanerI gave him a couple more so he made a fish and fishing pole for his guy.

    Of course the fish kept jumping up and attacking the guy.

    guyHe plays with a rubik’s cube like it is alive.

    The colors talk and interact with each other.

    His imagination never ceases to amaze me.

    Being a mother is a beautiful thing.
