Playing around

I wanted to post some pictures of us playing with some of the new Christmas toys.  We have gotten the Duo Scope out a few times and looked at all of the slides that it came with. Then they made their own with some water and dirt from a plant. We actually spotted a tiny single celled organism in the plant water. The microscope is a "Duo Scope" which means it can be used to look at microscopic things on slides as well as bigger objects like bugs, dirt, and other small objects. Here's the link if you are interested.



Here's a picture of Arianna using her new digital camera. You can see the face paint on her cheek also. I got them a pack of face paints and they have already used almost all of it. I've been impressed with all the designs they have come up with and drawn on each other's faces. This was a great gift idea (they had been asking for it) so here's the link if you are looking for something creative to get for a child.

Little (and big) scientists and photographers hard at work. A pleasure to see --

I have never heard of a "duo" scope - that is perfect - the best of both worlds!

We miss you guys!
