High Fashion

We didn't do Science Camp today. At the time we were supposed to be experimenting, every single child was involved in their own creative play:

Emily - Barbies in the playroom
Bradley - tinkering with random toys in the playroom
Sarah - Barbies in the family room
Wendy - Starfall on the computer (ok, so it's not that creative, but it was keeping her quiet.)
Jason - Observing Wendy
Rachel - napping
I wasn't about to disturb the peace. I cooked dinner early instead, and read over the several zucchini recipes I printed yesterday. I have about 10 lbs. of zucchini I need to figure out what to do with. If you have a good recipe, I would love to have it.

As I sat and read my recipes, I asked Sarah what her Barbie story was all about. All of the Barbies were naked and I was curious. She explained that there was Meanland (on top of the cabinets) and Goodland (on the couch), also known as Naked-dressland. Kind of like the Garden of Eden. She also explained that the naked Kens were the doctors and they were trying to get Barbie better because she had ants in her belly and it was making blood come out her eyes. Part of the treatment was placing her in a pit between the couch and the ottoman. I don't know if she ever recovered, but I thought it was a good story.

I'm beginning to think that the 10 week summer Science Camp I have planned might be a little ambitious, but we'll see how it goes.

  1. i'd love to share some recipes...when i can find them! however, last year i had a lot of zucchini left over, so i froze it in bags with 2 cups in each because most of my recipes called for that much. however, once frozen, it doesn't defrost to 2 cups! so you could throw a little more in. you can put zucchini in anything dinner you make because it takes on the flavor of what it is in, and it makes it go farther. in utah, mid august you either walk to church or make sure to lock your car! otherwise you come out of church to find a HUGE zucchini on the front seat! good luck with that!
