Eyes, Soft Pastels, and Quadcopters…our week’s highlights

Just a few of last week’s highlights…because a year from now I want to look back and see these pictures…

The three younger kids created models of the human eye to learn how images are formed on the retina (with the help of Mystery Science):

Peter began plotting his fantasy novel…I can’t wait to read it when he finishes it:

Emma broke out the soft pastels and applied some of the techniques she learned recently:

We are reading The D’Aulaires Book of Greek Myths and Mary Pope Osborne’s Tales from the Odyssey.  My 16-year-old repaired his quadcopter and flew it over the local bog, taking video of the landscape.

And it has been bitter cold, which is leading to a bit of cabin fever.

But the best thing that happened last weekend…

Our two youngest both participated in the sacrament of reconciliation for the first time. They were both so filled with joy afterwards. We are looking forward to First Eucharist.

What have you been up to lately?
