One of SteelyKid’s classmates came over for a couple hours today. After a bit, they got into the Magic School Bus science kit she got for her birthday, and decided to invent “new kinds of water.” The “featured image” above shows her reinventing stock images… And doing a better job of it than this clown. If you need an image to illustrate your chemistry story, shoot me an email– our rates are very reasonable.
(The sludgy brown mixture in the tube is water with soap, cinnamon, and cracked pepper floating in it. If you shake it back and forth a bit, the pepper does float around in a kind of cool-looking manner, which is what she’s admiring. I didn’t pose this, I swear– that’s a genuine “whoa!” face.)

It’s difficult to express how happy we are that she’s reached an age where she can have a friend over and they can more or less entertain themselves, with only minimal supervision. And the fact that they find science-y ways of self-entertaining…? Well, let’s give SteelyKid the last word on that:
