We started school.... early, but that's the way we like it.

Here's a long awaited update! I've been playing with our new camcorder. Forgive the poor recording skills.

Our school year generally starts in late July to give us an early spring finish date, but this year we have other plans in late July so we started earlier. Joshua had been begging for about a week.

The theme this year is "American Story 1", which is a literature based history theme from WinterPromise covering the exploration of the New World and going through the early 19th century. There's a special focus on Native American tribes, which is so exciting to Joshua and to me.

Here's a Youtube peek at our first big project of the year.

Loved your video. What happened when you took the bowl out? Our's collapsed! Maybe it wasn't dry enough. But it was fun to make, wasn't it? I hope you continue to share your projects.

We *waited* and *waited*... and it came out just fine! I can post a pic later if you'd like, without the bowl.

Video says unavailable at this time. :-( Disappointed.

Weird,Jimmie! I've never had it not work. I wonder what the issue was, blogspot or youtube?
