Bean Demise


In our homeschool we have been doing experiments. We had a lovely stalactite experiment that was finally doing what it was supposed to be. It was wonderful, but before even taking a picture we studied it and then got rid of it. It was clogging my counter and taking 2 much needed glasses from the cupboard. The other experiment was "the bean". We took our bean, put it in a glass (another glass we couldn't use) and put in a wet paper towel and stuck it in the window for some sunshine. It grew and was looking awesome and the girls asked every day to "check on our bean". Then for Easter I was hit hard with the worst cold ever. Another reason there are no Easter pictures. We did do something small, but I spent most of the day in bed and was out of it for about a week. This caused our poor bean to feel very neglected and it can't live without water. The girls were sad that their bean was dried up and dead. I made it up to them by getting a couple flower growing pots and now they ask about those every day. When they reach a good size we will transport them outside.

LOL! I love the face! Poor little bean. Maybe you could do another. I would suggest investing in some cheap plastic cups for experiments, that way they don't cause a glass shortage. :o)

Thanks for your comments! Especially the positive note about college, I'll make sure Marina reads that. I feel so behind in responding and blog reading lately. I hope your pregnancy is going well!

Peace and Laughter,
Cristina
