MIA in OK

The boys and I took a trip to my mom's house in Oklahoma last week.

14 hours in the car is a long time. But we made it without too many stops along the way.

We hung around the house mostly- taking walks, making popsicles, driving the tractor....


Loading rocks in to the tractor...


Dumping rocks out of the tractor....


They are boys, of course tractors are important! But some of them did take time out to help grandma plant some leeks...


Then they watched the the cement mixer pour and smooth concrete around the barn/workshop...


And make fresh pasta


And have an early birthday celebration for Lakin- who turns 3 tomorrow.

Sunday

Easter


With baskets to find in the morning


And little blue eggs to collect


New shirts to model


Tables to set


and place 'cards' to arrange


And naps to take....


at the table, in the middle of Easter dinner, on his chair


And Nana to play with


Chickens to catch


Smiles to give


Oil to change


And motorcycles to drive


And a beautiful spring day to enjoy it all

Saturday

Teeth and Theories of Extinction

Differences between herbivore and carnivore teeth


They each made a set of round, flat herbivore teeth and sharp, cone shaped carnivore teeth out of salt dough.

Then Rylan and Cale made a chart describing the different types of teeth and what they used them for. They also included a list of dinosaurs that had those specific types of teeth.

Theories if Extinction:

Cohen's mammal eating dinosaur's egg


Lakin's ark and flood


Rylan's meteor with tidal wave and dust everywhere


We also have a volcano which is made, but unpainted, and the scene unmade. Cale had a rough week last week and never got around to the thing he actually wanted to do.
