Schooling over breakfast.
This week we gained some new household pets. RSO Life suggests you go outside to find worms and snails for your experiments. I don't think these people expected us to be doing these experiments in July. No matter how deep I dug, no worms. No matter what we looked under, no snails. Just too dry and hot. Which leads me to what I learned this week. Did you know fishing worms are labeled "taxable grocery" at 7-11? The imagination runs wild.
So we saved some worms from a fishy grave.
I don't know that they are enjoying their mason jar, but I hope to move them to our old ant farm as soon as I get the chance so we can see their tunnels more clearly :)
I could not find land snails for the life of me! I called a bunch of shops. Apparently they aren't profitable to sell :p Go figure. So we settled for aquatic snails which were a challenge to measure, but we did our best.
None of the pictures in these books held a candle to the pictures we found on pinterest. Mass printing just can't do justice to the colors!
I had planned on picking up some frozen squid to make calamari, but never got to it this week. I'm sure they wouldn't have liked it and I would have gorged. I LOVE calamari....... Probably for the better that I never got to it... I've already gained enough weight for this babe and I've got two months left!
