To free up some time for other things we got a dryer.
Here it is performing its ingural/test run. It worked!
It is much smaller than any you would find in the USA. (Maybe 1/3-1/2 the size?)
But it holds a whole load from our washer and should really help in the winter.

Funny Aaron

Aaron built Henry VI attacking the Burgundians.

Andrew built Joan of Ark battling the British.

Boys building history projects

Boys made knex robots.

Whole family of robots including parents and grandparents.

For science this week the boys planned and made a healthy meal.

They all worked together to make a great salad bar.

Aaron even cracked the walnuts.
The only thing they didn't do was cut the carrots with a sharp knife.


But she is definitely saying mama and dad-dad too.
She'll scoot right up to us calling out the correct name.
