Last Friday we made the much anticipated edible cell. B has been looking forward to this day since he found out about it. First, I had to go to the store to get all of the candy to add to the jello. Second, we had to not eat all the candy before the jello cell was made (hardest part). When the jello was ready, we got started.
Check out all that candy! I realized pretty quickly that I got way too much candy. Darn. This is what was left over after the cells were made. Woops. Whatever will we do with all that candy?
After dinner, C and E got to join in the excitement of testing out the cell. It was also great to hear B tell his dad all about the different parts of the cell. There is something adorable about hearing him say Endoplasmic Reticulum. And I was impressed with all that he remembered!
I also wanted to share a picture of B that I took 2 weeks ago enjoying the great weather. These are the times that make homeschooling worth every second. From a kid who hated reading ... he now reads everyday ... and actually seems to enjoy it!
