In the lead up to Easter there has been a lot of busyness.  We've been working through Spring break so we can take 2 weeks off for our vacation which is coming up crazy fast.  Here is a bit of a peek at what we've been up to...

Some Eggs-periments. Checking out how atmospheric pressure works.


Dissolving egg shells and seeing osmosis in action. This was pretty cool...the eggs ended up feeling like rubber balls....if you look hard enough you can see the yolk.


We also dyed and decorated our Easter eggs and made Ressurection rolls and then we went on a field trip to a local TV station with Jack's scout group.  Here they are testing out the anchorman's desk.


And...of course being one of my children there always has to be SOME drama.  And as they were showing the kids how the weatherman uses the green screen and filming them with the tv camera...Jack pulls out his wiggly front tooth.  You can see him holding the blood soaked kleenex in his hand.  Maybe he has a career in tv...he certainly knows how to put on a show.



  1. How do you disolve an egg shell? My kids would LOVE that.

  2. I have the same question as hokgardner, except that the answer is for me!

  3. That's HILARIOUS!! Jack. Those babies of the family... gotta watch them. :)
