Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Putt Putt Boats, Part I

We are making Putt Putt Boats as part of our study of the Industrial Revolution. Simple steam-powered engines are made from aluminum cans, flexible straws, epoxy, foil, and birthday candles. Here you see us working on the aluminum engine:


Carefully cut and folded. . .


. . . fitted with straws. . .


. . . sealed with epoxy . . .


. . .  checking for leaks.


Still to come: Finishing up the engines and making boat hulls.
