This and that

T2 made a 'sponge doll family'. Not sure where she got the idea from but she had been asking for a packet of sponges for weeks and I finally remembered and $3 later she had an afternoon of fun with them. She wanted to pose them with the flags she has been making.

In the summer T2 bought horse sheets with some Birthday money. They didn't match her comforter or any duvet covers we had so I made her one from the flat sheet she wasn't using and another unused flat sheet. She loves them.

A little math.

I love soup season - especially home made soup

Sunsets are beautiful but a little earlier than I would like.

T2's Halloween pumpkin - I for got to take Halloween pics this year. T2 was a butterfly. T1 does not like Halloween at all.

Our preservation and decay experiment

 OK, so we started this experiment two weeks ago. The experiment was to last one week. I used packaged sliced bread. Two weeks later the bread has not changed at all - just shows how many preservatives are in that type of bread!! So we restarted a week ago with freshly baked bread and we have seen changes, gross changes!

 By day 4 there was quite a bit of growth on the plain bread and also the antibiotic bread but not where the antibiotic cream was. The toast was still as it was when it started. After a week only the toast shows no growth and remains the same in appearance but feels drier than when we started. I think we'll keep observing until the weekend and then into the garbage they will go. It has been interesting and both kids are surprised that the toasted bread had zero mould growth.
