My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine...


Yes, in our house, Pluto gets to still be a planet. I believe our science book actually touches on its dwarf planet status with a pretty thorough explanation. Since we're studying the planets in order, though, it will be a little while before we hit on those points.

And if you ignore a too small sun and a poorly-inflated Earth (umm, Bentley?), these balloon planets are about the right size in relation to each other. Maggie is fascinated with that concept. The kiddos thoroughly enjoyed this project--Maggie asked today if we could add satellites, and I had to inform her that the solar system was not a permanent fixture. Sadness abounds.
