Summertime and the living is busy.

Fear not!  I am still here!  Between running (or slowly jogging but moving at a pace faster than walking), swim practice, swim meets, playdates, gardening (well, watching Dan garden), errands, laundry, cooking and sometimes house-cleaning and preparing for an upcoming vacation, we have been busy! 

When my sister-in-law Cathy came for Sarah's birthday two weekends ago, she brought goodies.  She always comes bearing gifts for both kids.  This visit, she brought Peter this science kit:


Peter loves science so he was very excited to receive it.  The kids and Aunt Cathy immediately conducted one of the experiments.  They swabbed the insides of their mouths, noses and tongues and placed the "matter" into petri dishes with some sort of gelatine and water mixture and then were told to wait a few days to see if anything grew.

Well, grow it did.

After two and a half weeks, this is what we now have inside the petri dishes:



Pretty disgusting, huh?  I guess the science kit lives up to its name!
