LOVE those school projects!!

Emily has a project due in Social Studies this week.  We have put it off because she chose to make a Bastille out of cake - not exactly  a project you can do ahead of time.   The Bastille was used as a prison up until the French Revolution. 

The first attempt was a complete disaster!!  We purchased a full sheet cake, unfrosted, from Tom Thumb and cut it into four pieces, stacking them on top of each other.  We then 'carved' columns out of the cake - then came the frosting...  it was a complete mess!!!  

All I ever wanted to know about the French Revolution...

The final result was much better than we had both imagined.  We ended up cutting of the columns and using ice cream cones instead.   Hard work and the huge mess finally paid off!

Pi Day

'Pi, the Greek letter, is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to it's diameter.  Pi= 3.1425926535...   Pi Day is March 14th and is celebrated by Math enthusiasts around the world'.

Whooda thunk???  I had no idea there was a day to celebrate Pi - until Emily began learning about it in her Pre-AP Math class.  Her teacher, Mr. Mandanici, is an interesting guy.  He can solve a Rubik's Cube in less than 2 minutes.  Any who, the 6th graders than memorized more than 50 digits of Pi were treated to a Pizza Party yesterday in honor of 'Pi Day'.
