The Map Man
Bridge Engineer, map follower, accidental farmer, master go-with-the-flow-er, juggler of oranges and life, world's best father. My partner (for 24 years), my best friend (for 29 years), my heart (for eternity), my balance, my obsession. The reason I am where and who I want to be.
Twelve, enthusiastic, creative, hilarious, musical, dramatic, driven, future professional dancer (and whatever else he puts his mind to). Has a zest for life and all it's many nooks and crannies.
Nine (and a half!), karate kid, sensitive, imaginative, inquisitive, affectionate, observant, thoughtful, a free spirit with an old soul. Talks to animals and trees, listens to the wind and the stars.
10 months, bubbly, silly, musically inclined, cat (and penguin!) obsessed, baby on the go
In our Science Fridays chemistry curriculum, we're up to working with the structure of the first 10 elements on the Periodic Table. The kids constructed each of the elements by assigning the proper number of protons (pink marshmallows), neutrons (white marshmallows), and electrons (mini marshmallows) to each, along with it's chemical name and number.
Then they placed the electrons in their proper energy levels. Then they arranged their elements into their correct positions in the periodic table.
