Firedrake tried a new recipe this week...Chicken Corden Blue. I try to get her to prepare a meal at least once a week. We don't always succeed due to busy schedules but I encourage her to look up recipes in my cookbooks and give them a go. She likes to pick things I have never made before and so far she has always chosen well!!!
|First time hammering the meat|
|adding the fillers, I forgot to take a picture of it but it turned out yummy, I hope she wants to make it again!|
|If you haven't heard of these look them up as they are free for homeschooling families. We get one every summer to complete and they are easy to do and fun.|
|Comes with a comic book on a topic and most of the supplies are in the box. This year I only needed to supply a plastic cup, and an cell phone otherwise all the supplies were in the box!|
|We are looking at sound and vibrations and we use Dad's guitar to illustrate pitch and vibration|
|The box had direction on making straw trombones but I couldn't get it to work so I found a video on line with different instructions and we had success|
|I warn you, confiscate these right after the experiment if you want to keep your sanity later;)|
|This box came with four different experiments emphasizing sounds, vibration, pitch and frequency.|
|You see my hands here as MarioFan has taken to biting his fingernails and couldn't get the sound to work:) But he did the experiment with me LOL|
|One of the experiments was to show how you can see vibrations and sound waves using a laser light.|
|using an app we could make the laser dance on the wall depending on the volume and pitch of the sound.|
I have had more time in my stain glass studio and finished another glass piece for my husband.
|My husband is a huge Washington Capitals Hockey fan so he wanted this for his office|
|I had to use a marker to do the eye but everything else is glass|
|He is very happy with it and it is going to be both his father's day present (late) and early birthday present:)|
|Next I found some bevels I have been saving and decided to work on a new lead panel piece for the house|
|This didn't come with a pattern so I had to design my own. I am not as skilled with this process but I like what I came up with|
|Added in all the glass lines and then got started cutting glass|
|I just need to begin the lead process and it will be complete. I decided to use only one color glass which I think emphasizes the bevels :)|
|There is a new ride this year and it isn't too bad, even I can ride it:)|
Hope you are enjoying your summer break!!!
