colorful moods, lazy birds, rubber eggs, pumpkin cake, and eggshell art

A raw egg placed in vinegar becomes soft and rubbery - much as our teeth

do if we do not keep them brushed - an experiment to coincide with

The Tooth Book by Dr. Seuss.

Nathanael's drawing based upon Dr. Seuss's

My Many Colored Days

Taliesin's drawing of a lazy bird, based upon the Dr. Seuss classic Horton Hatches an Egg. (This is the first time he has used his sketchpad and drawing pencils he received for Christmas!)

Taliesin stirring the batter for the cream cheese filling for our pumpkin cake - which, of course,

includes the use of eggs - eggciting study based upon Horton Hatches an Egg.

Making eggshell art...

I love it! This is the kind of strewing that I love to see my kids doing in their lives. Very neat indeed! You can tell that you truly enjoy your sons. Nothing to do with this blog post, just wanted to share that I feel that as I read your blog. =)

Taliesin is really, really enjoying these unit studies. He takes their ideas, then flies with his own! And thank you for the compliment. I do enjoy Taliesin and Nathanael (most of the time, anyway - LOL. Just joking). :^) I love my sons. I always tell them they are my little everythings. :^)
