Slime. . . It's oohie, gooey, and oh so much fun! Our kids are learning about mixtures in science. The other day we made the corn starch and water mixture that some call OOBLECK. The kids went crazy with it. But today we mixed 1/4 cup water with a 1/4 cup of Elmers glue. They stirred it up and then I added 1/4 cup of a borax and water mixture. You should have heard their squeals of joy! It's a good thing we have an extra room with tables and a linoleum floor that can handle messes like this! I meant to bring my camera home to post pictures, but I forgot. I know that sounds just the excuses the kids give us about things they are supposed to do, but seriously I forgot. Maybe tomorrow I will remember! On a good note, did you see the sun today? We did in Michigan, and it felt so good to see it so bright outside again. Patty Oh and one more thing. . . Yea! Tomorrow is Friday! Yippee skippee!
