The fun never stops...

The kids ran 1 mile every morning for 2 months. They were training for their first race and it was so fun to see them work towards a goal. They tried really hard to fun the whole way without stopping. I got to run with them and I loved how they both wanted to hold my hand so it was a 3 person run thing we had going on. Sweetness.

Clams are a marvelous invention. We cut through the muscles on each side and popped that baby right open.

We found all kinds of neato parts in there.

This is what remained once we had finished. Sick! I had to hold my shirt over my nose so I didn't gag.

Charlie is brave and likes to slice things. Jane gets sicked out like me. Jacob likes to poke mostly.
Check out the investigating going on here.

We scraped his skull to get to the brain and saw his grody eyeball from the inside. I should have had breakfast first b/c I started to for real feel sick.

Lane was so fascinated by your experiment, so we went to the library and she picked out a book about animal anatomy. Yay! I did not do well in HS biology when we had to dissect thing...didn't bode well with the stomach! But we think it is really awesome that you did it.

We read Little Britches every night and even Charlotte wants to read it! She yells "wittle itches" even though she is only just barely 2 and I am pretty sure she has no idea what is going on. :)

You guys are awesome! I love seeing what ya'll are up to. You'll never believe what we are watching right this second. Jordan dug out the old Smiths cover band DVD and we are watching Timmy work it. I hope he serenades you nightly : )
