So yesterday we broke open the Exploring Creation book and the first experiment is the classic density demonstration where you pour different liquids into a jar and watch them separate and then toss in different objects to see which layer they land in. We needed a cork (check!), grape (check!), ice cube (check!), and a rock.
Me: Uhh… Eden. We need a rock. Where are we going to get a rock????” (We do not live in a neighborhood where there are rocks. Just trust me.)
Me: Go put your boots on and look in the woods.
E: (tilted head sarcastic squinty-eyed pre-teen glare)
Me: We need a rock!
E: Oh wait! I just saw one in my bed!

She is very much like a 3-year-old at times.
