M. got a haircut yesterday and it's really cute... but it makes her look significantly older to my eye. I think it's just right for starting college. (I will add that M. does not like these pictures and is only allowing me to put them up under duress... she knows her grandparents want to see the new 'do.)
And I have an addition to yesterday's bubble post. The children experimented with a new bubble solution and it works really well. The boys were able to hold their fingers in a circle and blow bubbles through them, it worked so well. Plus, it gives you a use for the corn syrup that is lurking in the back of your pantry that you aren't sure what to do with!
Bubble recipe (This is from the book, The Ultimate Book of Kid Concoctions which you should really find because it has some great activities and recipes in it.)
2 1/2 qts water
1/2 C light corn syrup
1 C liquid dish washing soap
Mix the water and corn syrup together until completely blended. Gently stir in dish soap. It says it will store for several weeks in an airtight container... that is if you have any left after your children are done playing.
