Day 57 - My little scientists & Birth Family Search...

Today the girls decided they wanted to "conduct an experiment." Hummm. Not sure where that came from, but if my little scientists need to experiment...who am I to stand in their way? :o)

First they thought about exactly what they wanted to accomplish...

All they really knew is that they wanted to use the food coloring :o) Haha!

Finally...a plan was hatched :o)

They got the cupcake pan, filled it with water and proceeded to mix colors together...

They thought it would be a good idea to stir the colored water with toothpicks :o)

They had a ball watching the water turn different colors.

Somehow little squezzers got involved.

That's when the experiment took a serious turn :o) Haha!

Next, rocks and a salad tongs. How long do I stand by quietly and watch? I can admit I was getting a little nervous :o)

Honestly, I was never into science so what do I know? They may be on the cusp of discovering something great here :o)

Whatever they are working on takes a lot of team work...

And concentration...

After several hours and lots of discussion, here you go...the next great discovery :o)

On a positive note, we are so ready to dye Easter eggs!

While the girls were hard at work, I played with this little bundle of joy. His giggling is going to be the end of me :o)

GUESS WHAT? Our investigator in Vietnam contacted us and set a date to travel to Ninh Thuan (the province Sophie Le was born)!! I am so excited. Thank you so much to those of you that commented and emailed me questions to ask her birthmother. I really hope we get answers to most or all of our questions!!! Of course, I will keep you updated :o)

So cute! Ramsey loves to have experiments in his bathroom sink! Lots of soaps, water, lotions, you know, very wasteful, but very occupying! Precious girls and boy!
