The best and most beautiful things in the world...

… cannot be seen, 

or even touched.

They must be felt with the heart.
Helen Keller

Science experiment #1 for kids, and kids at heart.
Do bubbles freeze???
Have you ever wondered that?

Wait till you see what other tricks I've got up my sleeve
 to get the messmonsters outside and breathing deeply 
in sub zero temps :)

Some of my OWN artwork nearly ready to post 
(not counting our recently constructed papier maché volcano!!)

Hope you're all set for a wonderful week.
And that you have made careful note 
to surround yourself with beautiful things.

Happy Birthday 
to my dearest Dad, 
my dear friend Patricia, 
and my god son Dorian

Finally got those Indian shots sorted out 
with stories to tell later in the week,
like being invited to be a 'second wife'
by the first wife!!. 

Now please excuse me, 
while I prepare myself for the rollercoaster ride school week
Love to all

  7. Frozen bubbles? You are a fantastic teacher! Take a look at my post about the ice balls on the shore of Lake Ontario. Your "students" might find this interesting. ~ Sarah

  8. Hi my friend - so nice to pop by and catch up with your busy-ness at long last. I have to say, the frozen bubble experiment sounds like fun - just the sort of thing my Milly would enjoy discovering. I'm laughing at the messmonsters outside and breathing deeply - this sounds like that line from The Sound of Music! Can't wait for some Indian colour - love that flower garland image. Take care, Amanda xx

  9. Oh Ange,
    I wish that we had had a teacher like you when I was at school!!
    Have fun enlightening the messmonsters. XXXX
