The Great Science Experiment of 2019: Did You Drop Your Cookie?
Bennett's science project was designed to test the validity of the "3 Second Rule". This future scientist wanted to know if your food really did get more germs the longer it stayed on the floor. To test his hypothesis, Bennett dropped cookies, leaving them on the floor for various amounts of time. He then tested each cookie, swabbing it for bacterial. The swabs were put into petri dishes and set under a heat lamp to fester for 14 days. Observations were performed each day and photos taken to document the growth - or lack thereof - of the bacteria.
Germs were most certainly detected on the cookies, and interestingly enough, the cookie with the most germs was the control cookie, that was taken directly from the box and spent 0 time on the floor. Hmmmmm... This may lead to several other experiments.

"Mom...." On Sunday evening, Bennett slipped his hand in mine, as we sat on the couch watching Shark Tank. I turned to him and said, "Yes?". His voice was reminiscent of that little boy voice of the past, and it got my full attention.
"You're probably going to say 'no', but do you think we could all go up to the big bed? Watch TV like we used to - you know, before (to this he whispered) Harper."
I smiled, "Well... is she invited to join us?"

Pretty certain that Andrew and Francis Safar are smiling down on us, proud of themselves and their children, and grandchildren, and great grandchildren and great great grandchildren.

Who's on First" bit by Abbott and Castello, and last night they received their first ribbon at the Ricori Speech Invitational - and it was not a participation ribbon either. These future linguists came home with top honors. Way to go, Abbott. Or are you Castello?

You did it, and there was never a doubt in my mind that you could, and would. Today's lesson: Write down your goals. Then, check it off and write down another. No mountain is too tall for you, Harps.
ps: Happy happy birthday, Hazey Dazey! #3!!
