While pursuing around on Pinterest (and collecting things to do this summer) I saw a little experiment that combines learning about absorption and color mixing so I thought we would try it.
Directions for Absorption Experiment: One cup with water and stir in some food dye, any colour you like (we did blue and green). Roll up a paper towel and place one end in the cup with water and the other in the empty cup beside it.
(Have patience… and maybe a plan for what to do while you are waiting.)
Directions for the Combination Experiment: Fill 2 cups with water, add blue food dye to one cup and yellow dye to the other. Put an empty cup in between them. Roll 1 paper towel. Place the end of one towel into the blue dye and one end of the other towel in the yellow dye. Bend both the towels and put the loose ends into the empty cup and watch the magic happen. As the coloured water is absorbed in the towel it makes its way up and then into the empty cup. The blue and yellow food dyes combine making green water. Pretty neat huh?

When was the last time you spread out a pallet (meaning a stack of quilts/ blankets and pillows) on the living room floor, popped a big bowl of pop corn and watched a movie? My sister and I spent almost every weekend camped out on a pallet in our living room.
Yesterday, I realized my kids didn’t know what I was talking about when I ask, “Do you want to make a pallet?” So on my quest to try new things with my boys, enjoyed the afternoon spread out on our living room floor watching Cars 2.

Gratefulness - Week 5
This week was full of some special moments and memories with some great friends and family and I appreciate so many people in my life.
The boys and I enjoyed lots of good times together… pool time, strawberry picking, a picnic in the park, playtime at the park making a model car out of plaster and painting it, a birthday party, some cleaning out and dressing up and a couple other little projects.
This week the redpepper 31 day challenge ended… and although I don’t have to show appreciation as part of a growth challenge, I’m trying to stick with it and keep showing appreciation to those around me everyday.
My sister, mom and dad also visited this week and it was so nice to have them here helping while I had a garage sale with our neighbors and a friend. It was fun and I raked in some pretty good money for stuff we really didn’t want anymore. (unfortunately, I didn’t get my camera out to capture them playing with the boys.) I could post a photo of our garage sale but that would be kinda boring. :)
So, grateful to have such a wonderful husband… who is such an AWESOME dad. (photo from the day the boys were born.)

No Potty Talk at the Table - Conversations with Preschoolers
Sitting at the table for dinner and the boys are talking at the same time. G stops and says looks at me and says..
G: Ethan said wee wee at the table and that is a potty word.
E: No, I said, ” Weeee…. Weeeee, like if you were on a roller coaster and there were two humps and the people on the roller coaster would say weeeee and then weeee again.”
Me: Nice recovery. Pretty clever son.
