Wow, I haven't done a school post in a long time! We have been doing a lot of time4learning.com (LOVE IT!) and reading. Today, we also did a science-y project. Levi scored this Hot Wheels car maker at a garage sale for $2 and we used it for science. It demonstrated how, when we apply heat to a solid, it changes states. And we melted plastic into Hot Wheels cars. Cool. We also combined baking soda and vinegar to blow up a balloon and cooked eggs for our snack. It was fun for the kids and I was glad that our morning spent garage sale-ing turned educational!
Speaking of garage sales, I do believe that I am addicted. If I see a sign, I have to turn in! What I really want to do is get a babysitter for my kids so I can go for a few hours alone. Paying a babysitter would kind of cancel out the savings by going to garage sales...but I would be happy:) Plus, I probably would save money. It's amazing what I will buy to keep the kids happy so we can hit one more sale. But it's only $.25! I also keep thinking to myself, "Our house is on the market, I can't be bringing stuff home" but yet, it comes. I can't help it!!! I need to do another toy weed out as the kids spend their money at garage sales. So, any moms want to swap babysitting on Friday mornings with me? :)
