4th Grade Music Program

The 4th grade classes had a musical performance night where they sang songs for the parents. The classes were split up into two groups, so we just saw Isabelle's group.

 It was great to see all of them perform for us. Isabelle had a strong voice and was very confident (later she told us she was nervous).

Isabelle is at the right end of the middle row

 She even announced one of the songs! It was a song written by their music teacher.

The Works

The Works is a hands-on museum for kids, located in Newark. We had a really fun day there back in March and all three kids found things they liked!

A play area for smaller kids. Parker liked going through the gate.

Making faces (see below)

Isabelle had to turn the gears to see how much power it took to make the light bulbs light up

A "puzzle" of body organs

Parker loved watching the balls rotate around and down the middle of this giant bowl

Playing with magnetic puzzle building blocks

This bench doubles as a xylophone

Shane and Seth built cars and raced them on a nearby downhill track. Seth's car won!

A driving simulation game

Upstairs houses a museum with things from the Newark area and Ohio

Part of the museum shows what the building used to be used for (metal works). The people are statues.

Larry the Glass Blower is on site and gives demonstrations. Here he is making a vase.

Kids watching
 A train car has been refurbished to look like it originally did.

It was a fun adventure!

Baby Dolls, Ipod and Napping

These photos are from a couple of months ago, but I captured Parker as he was taking care of baby dolls and playing with Isabelle's ipod. Fun times for Parker!

Changing baby's diaper

Found sister's ipod!

Yes, I know how to work this thing!
I also captured him taking an impromptu nap.

Buckeyes Hat

Parker wore this hat many times to play outside or go places. He loves this hat. We received many comments on it when out and about in the Columbus area!

Is it too later for an Easter post? This year we dyed eggs using food coloring, vinegar and water. The eggs turned out lighter in color than when we used the dye tablets. We like our new way better!

Indeed the Easter Bunny stopped at our house!

Finding eggs

Found an egg filled with candy!
