We've had quite the chemistry inspired morning. Ali, Alex and Hannah got out the chemistry kit, starting in the basement. I monitored from the kitchen, safely upstairs.
They made some diaper dust and oohed and aahed a while then moved upstairs where they mixed baking soda, vinegar and water. They learned they could suspend a bubble right over their mixture.
"So this is how you make a volcano..."
I'm guessing it lasted no more than 30 minutes. No explosions. No burns. Good thing Jeff didn't find Borax at the store yesterday...
One other Ogden-Reed highlight:
Last night they were pretending Alex was a dog and the girls were taking care of him. At some point along the way, the dog was choking.
"Do the Heimlich manure!"
"The Heimlich manure."
"Oooh. What's that?"
"I don't know but people do it all the time."
The puppy, had it lived, would have expired by the time they rejected the cure...
