Learning All the Time

Therese made a Rosary this year in her Religion class, counting the beads to make decades and figuring it all out on her own. She also sewed a matching rosary pouch.

Stringing her own rosary.
Andrew and William involved themselves in a rocketry project with homeschooling friends, measuring the degree to which variables (psi and water quantity) affected the resultant height of the water rocket. The project was wild and wet—and a ton of fun.

Little Andrew tries to build up the requisite pressure under the rocket.
And the water rocket is off with a huge spray!
(William is holding the rocket launcher.)
Andrew builds the pressure for the next launch.
William (in blue sweatshirt) and friends launch another rocket.
