A Tale of Two Beds - Part 19

Once again, here are the links to the previous 18 tales. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Frustration, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10, Part 11, Part 12, Part 13, Part 14, Part 15, Part 16, Part 17, Part 18.

Here's a twist on an old favorite. This time she moved into his room. Of course she brought along every stuffed animal she has so they wouldn't get lonely.

See that nice comfortable bed? Why would you sleep there? Clearly the floor is much more... hard.

He arranged and tucked in all of his animals. Then he curled up next to them.

She also arranged her animals, but she decided to stay in bed.

Um... I can't even explain why this would happen. He is asleep. I did move him fully into the bed after taking the picture.

Piano Recital

When the kids were 3 they were both in a group music/piano class. After a year of those, we decided to move Sweet Son to private lessons. This was his first recital as a solo rather than part of a class. He had to sit with the other performers, go up when it was his turn, play everything without music, bow, and go sit back down with the other performers. That's a lot to ask for a 4 year old. Here's the result:

Isn't the bow the cutest thing ever?

It's clear how much we love our local Science Museum. They offer homeschool classes and the kids were excited to learn more Chemistry, which is this semester's focus. Like all programs we have tried at the museum, this one is great.

The kids had their first day of Chemistry today. Today was lab safety so all of the groups were together - PreK-8th grade (30 students total). They had to go around and introduce themselves and say something interesting. Sweet Son told everyone about how we made a volcano yesterday (we did, it was my first time ever doing paper mache - no clue on spelling that one). Then Sweet Daughter jumped in and started explaining the parts of the volcano and how to know if it is magma or lava. The teachers were rather impressed. hehe
