After snack we then worked on a review of yesterday's faith lesson followed by a discussion on how we could grow in faith. It was decided that our task for the remainder of this month would be to read our bibles daily as a means of growing in faith. Pip chose the story of Noah and as a result felt so inspired to draw her own picture of the ark complete with animals "two by two." By now it was drawing near to midday, so we stopped working temporarily to say The Angelus.
Whilst the soup was still cooking on the stove (thanks Dave!) we just had time to tackle a quick apple experiment and work out which of the following liquids would stop an apple browning: water, milk, soda and lemon juice. Benedict of course new the answer but played along and after a twenty minute wait it became clear that, the lemon juice slowed down the oxidisation process.
Just for Benedict's and mine benefit, Dave gave a further more detailed explanation regarding oxidisation, only for the life of me I cannot remember fully what it was!! I'm blaming the brain fag on the end of day shut down and not my age!
After lunch we made a trolley dash around Lidl and as a treat I bought the children a magazine and a small chocolate treat for all their hard work this week. This is the first night I haven't had to sit and organise paperwork and planning for the following day, yippee! I'm off now to sit with my knitting and a warm cup of tea.
