You sank my battleship

We're just back from a quick trip to the beach (one nice benefit of homeschooling - we can travel anytime). Here are the kiddos building sand cliff dwellings.

We also had the chance to stop and tour a battleship on the way home. The kiddos had a blast checking the whole thing out.
So today we are back to our school routine. We've been reading about caves for science and have checked out several library books on the subject. Today we used play-doh to make stalactites and stalagmite on a "cave". It really brought the concept home for Nicholas and he had a blast.

He ended up adding action figures to explore his cave and find amazing treasures, plus he added several cave animals (small animal figures) to his cave. If you look closely you can see one of Andrew's "army men" sticking out from behind the "cave".
