Making and hiding our first geocache in the woods by our house. Had to put a monster inside or else what’s the fun?

Only wish the creepy rocking chair was still out there. But still, Simon found a pretty good spot :)

Newest favorite Charlie quirk… He cannot talk without raising and pointing his fingers into the air. Although this is the first time I’ve seen him use that finger.

I’m scared!!! (Of what?) The QUIET.

We’ve done it before but it’s worth a repeat. ENERGY!!

We tried to figure out how different machines we know and love work. From the coffee pot to a pinball machine. How does it convert one form of energy into another?

Really it was just an excuse to go to Greenfield Village on a 75 degree day for a picnic and a train ride. Soak in the last summer weather.

I did get stopped by several moms asking whether the park was hosting some kid of program, when they saw my kids collecting stickers and jabbering about finding “chemical energy!!!”

When I said, “No, it’s just me.” Reactions ranged from encouragement to quiet retreat from the crazy lady.

Simon’s cat masks…

Thinking I need to make a creepy modern art film with these. The red guy has a laser shooter on his head. Maybe it’s time to introduce Simon to Laser Cats.

We might’ve had the worst winter on record, but I have seen more California weather since May than I remember in my adult life.

Thank you polar vortex!

The plus side of an OCD child… He sees all the stuffed animals in the hallway and takes it upon himself to reorganize them and find each and ever one a home.

I told him we had too many stuffed animals and he immediately jumped into the pile to save them.

Gonna write a post on the actual “science” of our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle science day, but had to share some pictures of these kick butt little ninjas first.

Put them in a costume, give them some weapons, and they really get into it.
