Life if nothing but a giant science project


Life really is just one big science project.  Full of questions and guesses.


And every little thing needs figured out and researched. And analyzed.

And if you're me, over analyzed.  Like beat it to death.


Studied and concluded upon.




Yep.  Life really is just like a science project.  Just not as tidy.  Or as organized.  Or able to fit nicely on a tri-fold board.

But you know what I mean.

Right?

How DOES mint extract affect bean growth????

That's great! We've so been there... only WE learned all about "Underwater Subdivisions" aka coral reefs, and "Why Baking Powder is Necessary in Baking Powder Biscuits".

Fascinating stuff.

I love the letters she used :-) Is it wrong that that's what first caught my eye...patchwork letters :-)

I could go on for hours but in a nutshell, yes, life is one big experiment in which we never get all the answers. Sometimes it drives me nuts.

I suspect many of our conclusions would sound like hers - had I known X, I would have done Y differently...

My kids are just getting past this stage; I've enjoyed most of them but I'd rather not repeat the mold experiment, that one was kind of iccky.

Let's just hope this one time experiment turns out just right! Looks good to me!

Wow. Now I really want to know more about mint and lima beans. I found myself strangely excited about my future with our kids doing science projects, while strangely nostalgic for my own experiments from years ago. My dad actually constructed a tri-fold wood frame with hinges. I bet it's still in my parents' attic. All 4 girls used it, so I think he considered it worthwhile. I'm not going to tell him about the new fangled tri-fold board. Let's just keep it a secret between you and me.
