Where does the week go?

It seems like we just got home from camp, but it has been almost a week.  What a long week it has been!  No one really wanted to get back into the swing of things, but somehow we managed to…almost.

I took the girls roller skating today.  They are getting pretty good at it.  No one was hugging the wall today (a first).  We try to get to the skating rink a couple of times a month, and they really enjoy it.  They see a lot of their friends there, so that helps.  It is usually not very crowded, so that helps too.

We also did the girls’ science experiment today.  They had a lot of fun with it.  Turns out that everyone liked the lemonade made with honey best (no surprise since it is the sweetest) and the lemonade made with white sugar came in second.  No one liked the one made with powdered sugar.  I thought it tasted a bit weird.  I don’t know why.

While there doesn’t seem to be much science in lemonade, they learned a lot about the scientific method and a bit about taste.  I think that it was a good week for science.  I can’t wait to see what experiment they choose next!

    Powdered sugar usually has some kind of added none caking agent added to it. (corn starch or such) I’m not sure if it has to be on the label or not.

    You’re right! I knew that but didn’t think about it. I’m sure that would be the difference, especially since we don’t usually do cornstarch. (It would also explain Kiddo’s behavior over the weekend.) I really need to be more careful about these things.

    next time you can use your blender, food processor, or maybe the mill to make your own powdered sugar.
