burning chocolate, leaves, and bugs...OH MY!

One of Harrison's first Science projects this year was to experiment with Solar Energy using a magnifying glass and the Sun. We burned Chocolate - which smelled like smores, leaves, and bugs - which STUNK! Don't worry, the bugs were dead! :) He really enjoyed this and Jackson and Addison got in on all the fun too!

Next time I would do it on the grass or on cardboard or something. Anthony was thrilled to see the chocolaty mess we made all over the driveway! HA!! You'd be happy to know that in keeping with his usual self he convinced me that he REALLY wanted to burn a whole in Woody's face as Sid does in Toy Story 1. Anything to reenact that movie! Crazy boy...we did it. I explained the hole would be permanent and that we would NOT be buying a new Woody to replace burnt Woody. He agreed. I need to take a picture of it. Hilarious. Woody looks like a young Hindu girl with a Holy Dot or Bindi on her face!

They will never forget this hands on lesson!
I must admit it would be hard for me to put chocolate on the drive way. I mean - we're talking chocolate, Beth! :)

All I have to say is "Poor Woody"!

He really does go through a lot, that Woody.......first got his arm almost cut off and now this......

Now, as for the Choclate.....if Anthony is truly like his Dad....He probably gave you the ole quiz, "Now Beth, WHY did you choose the driveway to do this?"

Oh a little bit of chocolate on the driveway never hurt anybody and hey if Ella Rose had been there she would have eaten it off the driveway. Hee hee! Harrison is a hoot!
