I love flowers because they are always a surprise.
I have these growing in the flowerbed and I suppose I planted
them when the kids got married but I don't remember it.
When you have two weddings are your house, 3 weeks apart
and it is your two oldest children, you tend to forget things
like who planted these flowers. So I have a nice surprise every year.
We were outside working yesterday. I went to turn on the water
to water my chickens and this is what I saw.
This water balloon hanging from a tree, well the rope
between the trees. I looked around and I saw this.
A much bigger water balloon. It was tied to a branch
and it was really hanging down filled with water.
Then up in the middle of the arch was another water
balloon. My first thought was why the boobie traps.
Later I asked my sons, what are you guys up to with all
of the water balloons.
They were doing a science experiment. They wanted to see
how long it would take the sun hitting the rubber in the balloon
to deteriorate. They wanted to see if the weight of the water
made any difference and if being in the sun or in the shade made
It always makes me ponder why do I home school anyway. They
do things on their own without my input.
Oh and the yellow balloon, the one with the most water.
My husband was out there working by himself and all of a sudden
he hears a loud explosion and the sound of water and he looks to see
water gushing out out the tree.
I overheard him describing to the boys how cool it looked and the sound
it made. The boys wanted to know about the way the sun was hitting it
and all of that.
I just laughed.
I love summer.
