MFW-ECC - Week 23 - India, Mountains, and the Three R's

Our Week in Review

Attal, Mattal was not our favorite. It was more like a chant and less like a song. 

We did not get to do the art project of Kathakali Face Painting...maybe next week.

The three R's of conservation: reduce, reuse, and recycle. The kids came up with lots of ways to accomplish this and all on their own I might add :) We also found out there is a place to drop off items to be recycled such as plastic and paper in the next town over. So, during the next few days/weeks, we will be setting up some of our old containers as our own little recycling center. {Pics to come next week}

The kids *started* on their mountains. We plan to finish those early next week so we can turn them into volcanoes at the end of next week. That should make for a really fun experiment. The kiddos can't wait for that one!

We flew on into India and the kids are liking it so far. They can't wait to write Debabrata (our sponsor child and pen pal), who lives in India, and tell him all about what they are learning :) 

Hummus was technically supposed to be done last week while we were in Saudi Arabia, but we didn't have quite enough time to fit it in then. Besides, my Dad's birthday was this week and the kids wanted to make PawPaw M and their dad some hummus then. The kids really liked it! I wasn't sure if they would because they don't care much for the store bought kind, but the recipe in Another Trip Around the World was a hit!
