I don't have a picture for this, but I had to share the story anyway.

Isaac has really been turning on the "little boy scientist" attitude lately (Thanks for the phrase Gina). While normally I can work in the kitchen and things will be fine around the house, I really have to pay attention to the silence now. I've even had to take to locking my bedroom door because that's where all the experiments seem to take place.

Monday I found the boys with toothpaste all over their mouths, my bathroom floor, and the scale painted with the peppermint-flavored blue stuff.

Thursday, I'm trying to get the house ready for visitors and the kids packed to stay the night at Aunt Janet's in Idaho Falls. Again, it was too quiet. This time, I find Isaac and Ethan washing their faces in the toilet. It was a full on two-hand dip, face scrubbing experience (think the dwarves from Snow White...). Isaac took off running (I guess he's seen my temper before :-/) But Ethan wanted more of the wet stuff.

The only consolation I took was that Rob had cleaned the toilet the night before.

Other "experiments" Isaac has taken pleasure in include: studying the ants out back, digging in my garden, helping me "weed", and filling up holes in the concrete with water from the house (fill up a cup, spill half of it on the way outside, dump it in the hole, repeat).

This is a funny one.I am happy you are using the "little boy scientist". Any one with a boy can relate.
