This science activity was a big hit and Grace ended up making at least fifteen lava explosions.
Later this morning Jack, Grace, and I visited our library to check out books about volcanoes. We spent the remainder of our morning looking at the volcano books, making more lava explosions, and dancing to Old St. Helen!

Gracie Girl and Mommy tasted some fresh maple sap flowing from one of the trees at the Boilers. Gracie, and the rest of us, were disappointed to find out that it barely tastes of sugar. I guess this is why it takes 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of maple syrup. It truly is a labor intensive avocation.
Grace enjoyed sitting on one of the big tractors. We took pictures and smiled as she turned the wheel and pretended to drive. We were quickly brought back to reality as she became bored with turning the wheel and looked for the clutch and gearshift to make things happen. Why pretend when you can make the puppy hum?
