Slimy Science

This afternoon, we engaged in a slimy sort of science.  Really.  We made slime.  We mixed borax with glue and a few other things to make glow-in-the-dark slime, a glow-in the dark bouncy ball, and some silly putty as well.  The glow-in-the-dark stuff turned out pretty fun.  Madison used some pipe cleaners to make a little glow-in-the-dark spider, which turned out pretty neat:

Afterwards, we were ready about polymers, monomers, cross-links and more.  It was a fun little diversion.  Currently, Madison is sitting there with her polymers on the couch as we sit and watch "Guardians of the Galaxy" again.  It's part of our Marvel marathon, and this is the next one to go.  It's actually the first time we've seen it since we've seen the second one in theaters, so it's been interesting seeing again with a little more background.

We slept in today, once again making up for the general lack of sleep we've had lately, and upon waking up, Daddy had some work to do in order to set up for tomorrow's service at KidPak.  This involves a costume and a few other things, so we went to the office to set things up as much as we could.

It rained later on, still part of that ongoing leftovers from the tropical storm.  The Forward Conference ended today, wrapping up a huge week, and a pretty massive month at the church.  Lots of hard work and setting up all this time, and now here we are at the gateway to a month that calms down things a bit around here, at least for thirty days or so.  Vacations are taken, and there aren't really any big conferences or weeks that involve lots of set-up.  It's a time to spend more time with our families, with lots of staff vacations - including our own pretty soon.  Yep, we're looking forward to that one!
