Being Geologists....and flower picking fun
Monday A and I woke up both with a little case of the sniffles. Nothing to bad, just a scratchy throat and such, definitely not enough to slow us down. (Unlike this today where we both were mowed down by a nasty summer cold and spent to day snuggling on the couch watching Tom and Jerry and in bed reading.) Luckily we had a lot of fun Monday, and will hopefully be back to our normal selves tomorrow.
We started off the day being geologists and excavating crystals. (I picked up this set while I was in Louisiana this spring, and A had so much fun)
The kit didn't include safty glasses, but after the dust irritated A's eyes a few times, she ran into the school room and grabbed a pair from one of her other science kits.
I didn't snap any pics of the crystals she mined, but there were 12 total. She's been carting them everywhere with her in a little leather pouch....including into the tundra to pic flowers with friends, which is where we headed later that afternoon.
For now I am off to bed, hoping my ear and nose will unstop enough to let me sleep.
