I delivered Silvia's quilt to her on Saturday, and she got tears in her eyes when she saw it. That was nice to see! She's probably back in Guatemala by now, but we'll see her and her family in November when they return for another visit, so that'll be nice.
I got the binding put on MY Neighbors and Friends 2 quilt, and even got a movie in while doing it. Roger and I watched "The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," odd but charming and interesting in the same way that "Being John Malkovich" was. Funny, quirky, serious, and strange.
We delivered Caroline's science project to the science fair, too. She did her project on whether ponies can learn how to find a carrot! She did a careful experiement with 3 of the ponies at the stable where she takes her lesson, and made a great poster board with photos of the ponies being tested. She decorated the whole thing with construction paper carrots.
And when we got home, she was so thrilled with science that she just HAD to make a flour/salt/water volcano with bubbling lava (a vinegar/baking soda reaction). She had fun doing that while I made a batch of spicy barbecue sauce for tonight's dinner... The volcano was exciting, for all of about 5 seconds of foaming lava.
Oh well. I was able to convince her that it'd be FUN to wash the dishes. She's still young enough to be a bit gullible.
