Last weekend; our weekend of sister and brother and six kitten siblings

Just before the big celebration at brother's house.

my daughter loves, besides her brother, Tiger.

Five out of six

just one of many kitten-love pictures

Brother and sister together, In the pool of oobleck (do not worry if you don't know what that is!)

I cannot believe it was a week ago already.  These were all taken on Saturday and Sunday– June 4 & 5 last weekend.  Oobleck is a mixture of cornstarch and water, which creates a substance that is neither really a liquid nor really a solid– but it is messier than many families will allow (but not the family of N’s brother, which is one of many great things about them) and is really, really fun to play in and with.  As part of the party– people brought, as requested, boxes and bags of cornstarch– they were emptied into a pool, water was added and quicksand-like, solid-like, goop-like experiments and play ensued.  Hands in, feet in, cornstarch in hair, swimsuits, on feet and everywhere else.  The bottom photo is the two young people at play– standing in the oobleck the next day– when they had the pool all to themselves.  Below is a Youtube video of two adult men running across a (much deeper) pool of oobleck.  But you really have to see and touch it with feet or hands, to know what the heck I’m talking about.
