In which we check in weekly and update our Favorite Things: resources that fueled our curiosity this past week.
We're headed to the sun, guys! Seriously, you know that early this morning NASA launched a solar probe? (Why yes, yes I did set an alarm for 3:25am in order to watch the launch live. *Yawn* #nerdlife) To get psyched about all that science will gain from this probe, take a crash course on all the cool things that probes have taught us thus far. If you're like us, you'll get so attached to the Cassini probe that when you watch this video of the mission's grand finale, you might just shed a tear...) You can watch this series on Curiosity Stream or on Amazon with a Curiosity Stream channel subscription.

Game of the Week: Dr. Eureka
This game is a great mix of hand-eye coordination, fine motor skill and quick-on-the-draw logic. My boys hate playing with me because I always beat them. I met my match playing with my sister. Great quick, simple game.
Bonus Awesomeness: Beethoven's Wig
A total of thirty seconds might elapse in our car before one of my kids asks for to listen to something. That being said, I'm always on the lookout for music that they will enjoy...and that won't drive me crazy in the process.
Enter my latest finding: Beethoven's Wig. Comprised of professional opera singers and a delightful symphonic orchestra, this group plays all the symphonies that you know and love (Moonlight Sonata, Fur Elise, Maple Leaf Rag, Pomp and Circumstance...) but instead of "la-la-la-ing" along as you have until now, this group presents you with hilarious and irreverent words that you sing with gusto! For your listening AND watching pleasure:
