Every six months, our mission organization holds a "Homeschool Week" for those families who are homeschooling to come together for some group activities and learning. This past October, the theme for homeschool week and all the children had to present something that they had invented, or talk about an invention. Our kids decided to put their thinking caps on and invent some things. Mommy videoed the results, and Daddy edited it together into the video you see below. The volume on some parts of the video is low, but you'll get the idea. Enjoy.
John celebrated his first birthday recently. He was not aware that it was his birthday so he just did what he normally does: enjoy some sticky rice. In the following brief video "interview," John demonstrates how to eat one of his favorite foods.
Their mother teaches them reading, writing, and arithmetic. I teach them how to use aluminum foil to freeze their Lego figures in carbonite. That's an important life skill too, right?
Joshua says, "I like my Lego scene. In the scene, there is a a bookie holding a sparkle gun. He is shooting sparkles into the pool. There is also a bookie shooting water at the droid. A bookie and a droid are waving flags at their champions. Even the super battle droid is waving his arms up and down. I like to have Daddy post my Lego scenes. Enjoy!"
Joshua was very pleased with his drawing of an At-At Walker from the Star Wars movies, and requested that I post it on his blog (picture below). Joshua says, "I made this At-At Walker in my best 3D drawings. I am very proud of it. I spent time to put some details in."
Joshua has invented a new species of Lego aliens which he calls "Bookies" (which rhymes with "wookies" from Star Wars). In the video below, he gives an introduction to the nature and activities of these creatures which have recently consumed much of his time.
