A Little Bit of Comic Relief

Man, this blog is so serious. Lighten up, will ya?

So, we are in no way, shape or form studying dinosaurs, bones, archeology or paleontology but this has been Ella and Sarah's HUGE project over the last couple of days. I love homeschooling!

It's getting more and more complex now. They are making the tail longer, adding more ribs and really getting into it. You can see the dinosaur skeleton I printed off for them to use as a reference. Ella is free-hand cutting out all the pieces. She has informed me that, "If we get the house, I want to hang it up on the wall IN THE LIVING ROOM and make more and it'll be like a museum." How exciting! They are going to do a dog next.

And then we have the king of the castle and her royal princess...princess, er Sarah. Ella made the crown.

***UPDATED*** Here is their finished product. Notice the ubiquitous amounts of tape and tacks used to tape it together and hang it up.

***UPDATED AGAIN*** Ella just wanted to make sure that everyone knew what to do in that room...

Now who went and made it so serious afterall! :) Love, love, love the dinosaur!! She is really good with her freehand cutting - I am impressed. And won't you just *love* displaying it in your living room! That is so funny. Homeschool is great for stuff like that, though. We just finished doing OPG and Aaron loved it because we did magnetic letters today to review. This kid can really spell because of this program. I just said the word to him and he spelled it out. Words like squish and frock. I am so proud!

I put a picture of the skeleton on their wall, just so you know.

haha! i noticed you put it in their room, not the living room. that's cool that she wants your house to look like a museum. i can't wait until you bring the whole brood up here and we can visit all the museums - for free! i know, it'll be a couple years, but still, i can't wait!

The room was a good call. I even mine hang all sorts of things in their room that I don't think I would allow in the living room! I'm just not *that* cool of a mom!

Oh you want to see something really funny??? I'll post it, we get all sorts of pictures EVERYWHERE in the house, but I just can't bear to take this one down. I'll post it on this post.

My kids love to do projects like that! Their rooms are very ... *ahem* decorative... ;)

I love the bathroom picture!! No use in anyone getting confused!! ;) LOL!!

I've gone to take the picture down many time but every time I look at it I start laughing so I just leave it there.

Johanna said...

ROFL! Love the bathroom picture. That is great! Maybe Lily will look at it each time she passes by and be more and more aware of what to do, and not to do, in the toilet!

Let's hope so, because apparently seeing the real thing in action didn't clue her in a bit.
