letter B butterflies and hung them on our school room window. They have been pretty to look at all week.
We also baked brownies for some company we had arriving that afternoon.

Cruz had to log in to his science workbook what bugs he saw. Here is one of his pages.
Here are the boys getting an upclose look at a centipede that crawled into our carport one morning while they were outside eating snack.
I'll admit that these give me the creeps but the boys think they are cool. They are all around our house.
Another part of our science lesson this week was to go on a bug hunt. We made these masks to wear while looking for bugs. It made the assignment a little extra fun don't you think.

another fun science assignment we did this week
playing in the dirt late one afternoon
They had filled their wagon with dirt and was emptying it into their box. When the box was filled they would empty it out and start over. It was a great way to burn off some afternoon energy.

Our Bible lessons were about Creation and Adam and Eve. We learned a new hymn- "In the Sweet By and By". The memory verse of the week was Proverbs 20:11 "Even a child is known by his doings".
We learned two nursery rhymes- Baa Baa Black Sheep and Little Boy Blue. We counted and wrote numbers more times than I want to remember, ha. We played learning games and worked puzzles. We finished up the third book in the dragon series (My Father's Dragon, Elmer and the Dragon, and The Dragons of Blueland). The boys liked the third book The Dragons of Blueland best but my favorite was My Father's Dragon. All three stories were wonderful and I would definitely recommend them as read alouds for boys.
It has been very hot in Chiquimula this week (it is always hot but this week has felt hotter than normal). Today we are enjoying a much needed break from the heat. I'll fill you in on that in my next post. Have a great weekend everyone! "C" you next week. ha
