Since Monday is most always Family Day, and since Dad had to go to work this day, we consoled ourselves with packing our day full of color and interesting things, until he came home to us.

I'd been thinking and talking about getting out the vials and pipettes for a couple of weeks, now.... this was the day!

and since we had stuff out....

 crystal gardens....


we tried our hand at Sharpie tie-dying... we'll explore this further, for sure....

 "Mom, is there anything else that explodes?" from Trevelyn.
"Yes!  Check this out."


Half of an Alka-Seltzer tablet in one teaspoon of water... put the lid on, turn the film canister upside down, and stand back!
"Again!  Again!!"  from Maddie.
"Well," says Trev, "I wouldn't exactly say it explodes, but it's cool!"

For those who like to subjectify, we'll call this Math.

And--the rest of the day

 looks like swimming

and making dinner with Daddy (Maddie),

and laughing
and drawing
and loving.
That will do.
