Summer 2014, Week 8

#1 - Field Trip - Utah Olympic Park (loved being there with my fellow roadie and her kids)








#2 - Science Project - Jell-O Marshmallow Fondant - not exactly science driven, but we liked talking about the chemical make-up of the finished product (directions are here).






#3 - Hike - Ghost Falls (Bubbs did 100x better this year than last)





#4 - And then we did a little of this... (Dinner with our sweet friends visiting from Connecticut, more tennis lessons (this time Pretty Girl signed up), everyone finished the summer reading program at the library and picked out a free book!, and a relaxed BBQ with friends)






In the dog days of summer as muslin curls on its own heat
And crickets cry in the black walnut tree
 
The wind lifts up my life
And sets it some distance from where it was.
-Meena Alexander-
