Some days...

Ugh. We're all recovering from a nasty bug that's been going around, so the homeschool fun has been a little thin on the ground the past few days in favor of some "lay on the couch and nap in the hopes that we'll all get better" time. Although we did walk over to Jamba Juice for a smoothie for breakfast this morning. (Both Bannanarama and I would be living out in the country or up in the mountains for preference, but there are perks to living smack dab in the middle of the city.)

I leave you with Zorro's re-creation of the Sarlac (sp?) pit scene from Star Wars, as interpreted with lap harp, peg board, and toy figures. :)

Like oil and water...

The big guy did this one with the kids last weekend:

Oil, water, and glitter in a bottle:

It looks much prettier sort of Lava Lamp-ish after it's been agitated:

Why don't they mix? 'Cause those oil molecules absolutely LOVE each other, baby! (They are more attracted to each other than to the water molecules.)

I love it when science is pretty. :D
