The spotlight exhibit this summer on costume design was stunning! It was really amazing - and I was expecting just the opposite. Wow!! I was esp. shocked when I discovered they were showcasing Marianne's dress from the Emma Thompson version of Sense and Sensibility. I got a little giddy.
#2 - Science Project - Tea bag rockets (more gas expansion properties)
These were tough for the simple fact that only 2 of the 10 attempts actually took off (see video). I think the secret is heavier tea bags.
#3 - Hike - We didn't do a hike this week. Mom is getting anxious with back to school shopping, organizing and an ongoing list of stuff to do with only 2 weeks left. Add to that major yard work...
#4 - And then we did a little of this... (Birthday parties, unintentionally matching at baby's blessing, 16yr anniversary and a date-night with Greg (yay!!) and finally.... we made these. As you can see - they started off conservative - and now they're quite epic in size. And my kids are STILL playing with them)
