Today our friend E came over to spend the day. We have been friends with him since we first moved to Nashville. Since he and Amelie were so little. This little, in fact:
This is them now, in the middle of a science experiment:
I had gotten a juice drink in a disposable cup from the local health food store that was *supposed* to break down immediately under hot water.
We waited…and waited…and waited all day. And it only crumpled up a little bit. Maybe we did it wrong, or maybe it does decompose faster than traditional plastic cups. We sort of gave up and called it a day.
We watched another documentary together about weather and why the earth’s tilt affects the seasons. This was part of my environmental science homework, but I just gathered all of the kiddos together, grabbed the big earth globe, and called it science for the day.
The girls did some independent projects later (Sera watched a documentary and Amelie worked on art later that night) but mostly they all played together.
