His compliment reminded me of this page from CDC? by William Steig (a very fun read). We also read Steig's book, When Everybody Wore A Hat, a very kid-friendly autobiography. I had no idea he was born in 1907.
I let Aidan play with my camera, and besides some very unflattering shots of me, he took this funny series of photos.
Avery had some fun in the kitchen today. First she made cookies (as seen in my new banner); they are sugar cookies with crushed Jolly Ranchers melted in the middle.
Then she made her own lava lamp using popcorn kernels, vinegar and baking soda (go here for directions and for many more way cool science experiments that kids can do mostly on their own).
After a trip to the thrift store, where she scored an ant farm for 49 cents, she caught some ants that had invaded the cabinet under the kitchen sink and spent the afternoon observing (I made her take the ant farm out of the kitchen and into the living room).
And then we had homegrown carrots with dinner. Aren't they cute?
That's about it for this ideal wife, but I will finish with one last word: LOST.
P.S. This is the second day spellcheck has not been functioning on Blogger, so please ignore any spelling errors. Perhaps I am not so IDL after all.
