Out for a Walk and a Haircut

Yesterday we went out for a walk and for Eliana and me to get hair cuts. Both were successful, though getting Jadon to slow down for a picture is not easy these days!

Art Class

I've been looking around for opportunities for Eliana to do some extracurricular activities in Russian that she'd enjoy. A few weeks ago a friend met a Tajik girl who teaches art lessons and after some communication to figure out a plan, she and a friend had their first lesson today. I sat in today and Eliana did great understanding and talking and the pictures they did turned out really nice. And of course, she had a blast! I'm so thankful for this fun opportunity!

Going Back to My Roots

Some of you may know that I have a microbiology degree, which I obviously don't make much use of these days! So, when the chance to do a bacteria experiment came up in our science book I decided that it sounded like fun. We first tried making our own agar using recipes I found on-line but it would liquify at room temp and since you can grow bacteria so well that way I was excited when my friend discovered some old agar down in our homeschool library! Score!

So, we used the agar, swabbed four surfaces in our apartment and let the bacteria grow. And it worked! It was a perfect experiment by any means but it was our first and it was fun. Made me a little more excited about doing school at home.

Hyatt Family Fun Night

We decided it was time for our summer trip as a family to the Hyatt! It's stinking hot outside and it's been awhile so we went for a family fun night last night. We had fun swimming, watching movies, eating yummy food and just hanging out as a family. As always, we are thankful for this little oasis right here in our city!


And finally, just because I think toddler walking is so adorable...
