While cleaning out files on my overwhelmed computer, I ran across this document, evidently my attempt at journaling funny things the kids say. It was written in April 2008 and too cute not to share with you all, even if it is months later.
Madison, standing at sink with a pen held under a stream of water.
Me: “Madison, what are you doing? “
“I’m getting more ink”
“But that’s not ink, it’s water.”
“Oh.” Pause. Then how do you fill the pen up again?”
“You don’t. You buy a new one.”
Pause. Look at pen dripping with water. “Good grief.”

So, we finally caved, actually Robb finally caved, and let us get a couple of cats to "mouse" around the farm. The kids are loving having pets and take every opportunity to dash outside for a school break. The kitties are adjusting well to their new home and at least Nadia seems to enjoy being carried, manhandled, chased, propped up on tree branches, pulled off, fought over etc!

We are on to studying mummies and the process of mummification. Mitchell and Megan made canopic jars (with a little sculpting help from their crafty mom). These jars were used to store preserved organs from the mummy, and these jackal heads on the lids specify that each jar contains a stomach, though I believe my children have decided that theirs will store money.
