With a focus on science this week, we managed to squeeze in a ton of experiments. We made the strawberry DNA work (finally), exploded some soda, engineered taller, more solid buildings by using celery + apple chunks with the marshmallows, and are (hopefully) growing some rock candy in the cupboards of our rental space. We also visited Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, where all the animals came out to say hello! After a long-awaited trip to IKEA, the kids also assembled their individual desks + other pieces. Rosetta put together a chair + Wilder a shelving unit.
In the span of two weeks, we’ve managed a camping trip with zero camping, three days without power, a Great Wolf overnight and some Covid. Life is weird.
Whew. We’ve begun embracing the season and starting all the holiday crafts and our seasonal read-aloud, all great things!
More gorgeous fall weather = more time outside, right? We are soaking it all in.
Who’s licked you this week? Rosetta got more tongue than she bargained for at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
