We started early with making waffles for breakfast. And I whipped up some cashew sour cream to use in ceasar salad dressing for dinner. Then Animal requested a science experiment of his choosing. He has been asking for a couple weeks, but I didn't have balloons. Yesterday, however, I had finally picked some up. So, I got to say 'Yes' to his experiment. He tried to describe what to do, but in all his excitement things got mixed up. I asked him to show me the book it was in. A few minutes later he returned with a Magic School Bus book which, sure enough, had his experiment in it. We tried the experiment with success and kept all the materials together to show daddy tonight.
We also read some books. Added to our word wall, and learned a new strategy board game - Quoridor. The board game went way better than expected. They got the concept, but found the idea of not winning upsetting. I tried to explain that it was about the process, not the result. I think they still had fun. At least until they realized I was going to win.
At the moment, the three boys biked over to Grandma's to thank her for some spring jackets she gave them. They were supposed to come right back, but I think they got side tracked with the assortment of machine toys grandma has on hand.
Oh and if you haven't noticed. The new camera arrived and works great.
