Not my projects, though. (Side note: I am 2/3 done with the bathrobe!)
Hayley has had three major projects in the works this week. One for math, one for Family and Consumer Studies (Home Ec in my jr. high days), and one for Health.
The biggie was the math project. She had to make a household item Paul Bunyan-sized. She had to work with ratios and measurements, etc. to make a dental floss container the size that it would be if Paul Bunyan was to use it.
My mother gave Hayley some posterboard to use and this is the front of the container.
But posterboard isn't very rigid so we had to glue it to matboard. And then we used styrofoam inside to make it stable.
After much whining and mess (guess who was responsible for both? "Mom, I don't understand how to do this!" "Mom, can you help me?" "How are we going to make it like a box?" "Whine!") (styrofoam is NOT fun to cut up. And it's difficult to get all of it out of the carpet), she finally finished it.
Paul Bunyan now has nothing to fear from gingivitis!
So how does her giant dental floss container compare to the original? (because of my inability to get my camera to focus on a closeup object and a faraway object simultaneously, the picture is not great. Please excuse it)She has to take the dental floss to school tomorrow but she doesn't know where she's going to put it. It obviously won't fit in her locker!
Her FACS project was sewing a pair of pajama pants, which she finished yesterday at school:
Notice Matt's inability to respect his sister's accomplishments.
The health project is due next week and now that the dental floss project is done, she can focus on inhalants. She had to interview a medical professional so Jim took her to urgent care one evening and Hayley explained to the nurse that she had to interview someone. They were very understanding and a doctor took some time to answer Hayley's interview questions.
Hayley will be glad when all of this is over. Three projects at once is a bit much. (for mom too)
