Yesterday we finished reading our book, One Beetle Too Many, about Charles Darwin's life. The kids really enjoyed it and now want to read Origin of the Species. So I guess we will.
We also decided to join the Homeschool Science Club at the HMS Beagle Science Store in Parkville. Grandma and Papa love that store, and my kids love anything science-related. It's only $20 for the year, so it seems pretty worth it. We go on January 21st for a program about electricity. Should be fun.
We also bought a paleontology kit from Hobby Lobby yesterday so that we can excavate a mini-triceratops from a plaster block. The kids started it this morning. Photos to come when it completely emerges.
