Week 14 - A Fabulous Week!!

This has been a great week full of math tests (Megan got 93% and Michael got 100%!!), paragraphs written without complaint (for the first time in 14 weeks!),  finding out about the Minoans and how they mysteriously disappeared, and learning about the brain in science.    The most exciting thing we did though was dissect a sheep brain!

This is how we started.  Megan was crying and refused to look and Michael was grossed out!
After 20 mins of crying Mom broke down and cut the brain in half herself.
Michael was the first to come around and actually check it out.
Michael pointing out the brain stem and Megan contemplating checking it out.
Megan pointing out the Frontal Lobe but not to happy about it.
Finally both past the freak out and deciding this might actually be pretty cool.
Actually cutting!!!

Not wanting to be out done by his sister Michael decided to cut to.  :)
