I love the afternoons where I pick up the girls from school and we just come home. Where we don't have to rush to guitar lessons, or ballet class, or gymnastics - just home.
Yesterday was one of those days.
We came home. The girls put on last Thursdays episode of American Idol. Then they started brainstorming. Alexandra started drawing out plans for some invention she is working on. Lorelai stood on the balance beam and began thinking up different science experiments she could conduct in the kitchen. She then recruited Alexandra and they got to work. They filled freezer container lids with different combinations of sugar and salt and water. Now they are sitting on my kitchen counter and the girls are patiently waiting for the water to evaporate so that they can see what sort of residue is left.
And Elisabeth and me?
