On a creative note Brand--only one day into his fall break--made this telescope. I know, it doesn't look like one, but its got that little magnifying glass in there and a spot for the thing your magnifying. He's a genius I tell ya. Which makes me understand how he did so well this semester in school. On Sunday, after church of course, we experimented with this guy and grabbed a leaf, a potato chip, and a piece of hair--each at different times--to see what we could see. It was really neat to see the veins on the leaf, and the potato chip looked pretty nasty and greasy, definitely ruined my apatite for eating potato chips.
I'd also like to add how much fun it is to be around family, to have them so close. I think it's one of those things I've never really stood back and thought about. But reminiscing on the weekend and the fun Sunday evenings and nights that we have I can't help but feel grateful for being so close to family. Sometimes we take it for granted, but we are so grateful to have them near.
Oh, did I mention there was an awesome blogger meet up this weekend?! I love blogger meet ups because you get to meet people face to face and confess your undying love for their jewelry or their sense of style. More on this tomorrow, plus a giveaway from Shop Crystal Faye.
