A real-time art project!

Every Monday we meet with another homeschool family to have a dedicated art project and some time to just hang out.  This week was more of a science experiment than an art project so Lisa called it a real-time art project, which fit!  All that was needed was 2% milk (or higher), food coloring and dish detergent.

The idea came from this website found on Pinterest, of course, and after some research, I could explain to the kids how the fat and the protein in the milk reacted in different ways with the dish detergent to cause this cool reaction!

All of the birthday girls have some birthday money to spend and want to do that as soon as possible (tonight!) and there is a chrism Mass tonight.  Eric is unavailable for the evening so I'm trying desperately to see if I can pull off both things.  I've never been to a chrism Mass before and would like to go.  Also, thanks to Lisa, I'm going to see if the library has the movie 'The Gospel of John' as a way to celebrate this Easter week.  Apparently it is 3 discs so we could plan that for the evenings through Holy Thursday and it sounds like everyone will enjoy it. 

As I mentioned in the previous post, I am anxiously awaiting my new-to-me 35mm lens and when the doorbell rang today I think I fought the dog to get to the door first!  But it was only a delivery of printer ink...  heehee
