In history, we learned about slaves in the New World. We also read more about Hernan Cortes conquering the Aztecs.
For science we read about the Milky Way and other galaxies.
Colin and Molly had basketball practice on Wednesday. Molly just loves her basketball clothes.
I told the kids if they finished most their geography fair project yesterday they could go to the park today. They had everything done yesterday except sticking stuff down to the display board and Colin did that right after breakfast. I was hoping to do the rest of the astronomy I'd planned for the week this afternoon. Once we got to the park though, the weather was so nice, there were lots of boys around Colin's age playing football, and the girls were having fun playing with other kids so we ended up staying longer than planned. They worked hard on their project and did a really great job so I think they deserved some extra play time. Constellations can wait until next week.
