Motel Homework

It's been a busy week at the motel!

We began the week with our daughter's year-7 Maori Language Week workbook. After a bit of angst we decided that our family didn't really mystically align ourselves to any particular river, mountain or tribe however we thought our waka could be Te-Holden.

Google was able to quickly finish off the rest of workbook by translating various useful phrases from English to Maori and vice-versa.

Today we had a science fair project to complete. As parents, we obviously didn't do any of the project ourselves, however we assigned ourselves as creative directors and fetched various materials from around town.

Essentially the project was to compare the effectiveness of three different washing powders in removing wine and tomato sauce stains.

And here is the finished result:

 For the record, Persil came out on top. 

We are hoping that we our daughter gets a good grading;-)
