Big, Giant Love and the Theatrics and Science to Make it Happen

  Yesterday, after completing Tax Season, and being home again, I was able to finally put into place our new Eat Art feature. Ben and I figured it out on one of our recent walks. We decided on the following schedule for feeding ourselves a rich diet of Art.

Freakiest Science Day Ever – My Hairs Won’t Stop Standing on End

To preface, let me say that some people will be offended by this. Others will be horrified. I was horrified, to be honest. I could barely watch. I got up and started folding laundry, but Ben watched intently through the whole first and second videos. But first, a little background. Ben has been building werewolves lately. In fact, he spent a solid ten hours on … Continue reading Freakiest Science Day Ever – My Hairs Won’t Stop Standing on End

Science and Laughter in the Midst of Bathroom Humor

We ended up talking a lot about Cause and Effect at dinner tonight, because we’ve been having a hard time getting the boys to do what they’re told. And all this time, we are doing super cool things. Scott has been working on Bean’s mini-bike with him… the parts just came in this week, and they were putting it all together. I’ve been doing pretty … Continue reading Science and Laughter in the Midst of Bathroom Humor

Classify, don’t Stereotype – Sort, don’t Judge

Over dinner we got into a big discussion of not judging a book by its cover.  We talked about the people we met at the Art Gallery, who were disabled, and how some people would look at them and think that their life is difficult, and they wouldn’t take the time to get to know what is inside that person. We don’t want to look … Continue reading Classify, don’t Stereotype – Sort, don’t Judge
