Ombu home taking a stroll

Here are some pictures from the girls home from a few weeks ago. They love to take pictures of what they do. My favorite is the fifth picture where one of the girls is staring down the llama. Sometimes you have to take extra time with the llamas to make sure they know who’s in charge. :)

First Math and Science Club Meeting

Last week was the first CRA Math and Science club meeting. We started off making journals that we are going to use to record the labs we do. After we decided what we were going to do for the next several meetings we then did our first lab. The group decided to make electric motors out of batteries and copper wire. Some people's motors worked and others not so much. When we were done we wrote in our journals about the lab.
Here is a 10 second video of the motors in action.

A little different dinner

These are pictures from last nights dinner. We had a holiday party for the staff and served the leftovers to the students. They all seemed to have a good time with it.

There were little quiches, zuchinni sticks, cordon bleu bites, pigs in a blanket, veggies—of course, crackers and dip, and the best part was the chocolate fondue pot. We dipped pieces of cake, cherries, strawberries, and apples. It was great.

I hope everyone’s December is going great so far.
