Science Fair

The science fair is tonight. We are almost ready for it....The pictures have to be glued onto the poster board and I have to convince Simon to put on a short sleeve shirt with his camo shorts. As opposed to the sleeveless one, he went to school in this morning. Can you believe that the kid is going to school in sleeveless shirts in March?? It was close to 80 yesterday... He wanted to be prepared for today.

The terrariums turned out great and they do show the water cycle (I'm back on the science fair projects, if you were concerned about the shift in content). The boys like them and understand how the water cycle works so I guess that is all that really matters.

First fire

The weather has been beautiful for several days. It's supposed to be even nicer tomorrow. Don't know how that could be for mid March, but I'll take it. Day after tomorrow we could have snow (the forecast says no, but weather is changeable).

The boys have been asking for a fire, so tonight was the night. A small fire and roasted marshmallows. The smell of burnt sugar was divine.
