Daniel has started his first season of baseball (technically "mini-ball" at this age). This weekend some of the high school players came out and gave a clinic for the kids. Daniel had a lot of fun and was able to work on hitting, catching, and throwing. His first game is this Tuesday and he can hardly wait!
Last week Emily's class went to Berkley for a field trip to Lawrence Hall Museum of Science. It was a long drive but a lot of fun overall. I had a terrible sinus infection, so that made the drive even longer. But, I had great company to share the ride with. Here are some pictures we took during our day.
The View of the bay and the bridges
We learned about "The Amazing Brain"
and made a hypothesis
about different animals brains.
After that we were able to
hold and observe some of the animals.
Then we got to experiment with
and discover the properties of dry ice.
Is it a gas? A liquid? Or a solid?

What follows is an attempt to multi-task
by 1) getting the old photos out of my camera and
2) burning some time since I cannot sleep anyway
(Thank you loud-disrespectful neighbors
who party way too late, way too often and are way too loud until 3am).
Wheh, I got off track there - it must be the lack of sleep.
So, please (all 1 of you who read this)
excuse my marathon photo posts
and lack of words,
but here is a look into some interesting moments
from the last few months.
Daniel wanted to bake some cookies all by himself, so...
Performed a Quality Control
Stirred in the most important ingredient!
Sshhh...Added the secret ingredient
And Now...THE MESS
The Lick...uuhhhumm, I mean Quality Control #2
Ready? for the oven?
Time to share the GOLD (DOUGH that is...)
Checking for Chewiness...Yep, that's good
