Two weeks down!

It's hard to believe that we've already completed two weeks of school...the days have just flown by. School is continuing to go well; the kids are doing great and I am thoroughly enjoying the new role of 'formal' teacher.
We have been learning about flight; air pressure, airfoil, aerodynamics, lift, thrust, drag, etc., so today we finished our school day by going outside to observe flying creatures/objects and their characteristics -- I'm not sure which one of us is having the most fun with this school-thing!!!
After observing butterflies, birds, falling leaves, an airplane, a bug, and the kids swinging, the kids launched their paper airplanes from the fort.

Kites-let's go fly a kite....
Another flying thing...does it count?

So glad you love to teach, too!

And that they love to learn!
