Isn't She Lovely

Paige started school on Monday. She's really happy to be back, and I finally feel like I'm getting a bit of a handle on things. Having a schedule is awesome.

Brooke also turned six weeks! She's a doll. She just started smiling and it's adorable. She's sleeping better stretches most nights too! We were looking through some pictures of all the girls, and comparing them to Brooke. We get asked a lot if Brooke looks like anyone. And while all the girls look very similar, this is Brooke at six weeks:

And this is Paige at six weeks:

You'd think they were related or something. They're pretty beautiful babies if I do say so myself.

A Fine Day for Science

Between being super pregnant, having a brand new baby, and it being over 90 degrees, we haven't been able to get outside as much as the girls would like this summer. We decided it was a good time to bust out some of the science-y projects we've talked about for a while.

Paige wanted butterflies for her birthday, and got this awesome kit with live caterpillars. You watch them form their chrysalis and then hatch into butterflies! We talked through each step with the girls, who loved checking it several times a day. We had to pry the pretend wings off of the girls when it was time to go to bed, and Anna is still upset that the caterpillars never taught her how to fly.

We also have been growing a mushroom farm! These things grow crazy fast. We soaked the spores on Saturday to activate them. It took a couple days to see anything, but these pictures are from the last four days. 

Aren't they cool?! Paige told us she wants to be a scientist when she grows up. I'm kind of giddy at the idea.
