Our first big snow day happened to be a paper route day. No cart and no scooter in this weather. Thankfully there weren't too many flyers!
The thick layer of snow beckoned us to breathe life into them - introducing Pedro and Molly!
What better way to enjoy the rest of our slow snow day but to snuggle up with a good book.
Serena's current read: Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver.

exhibition by Kimsooja, a Korean born, Paris and New York based artist.
The exhibition showcased many fabric bundles called "bottari" which Kimsooja created using bed covers and used clothing. Through the many beautiful installations in the exhibit, Kimsooja has taught us much about the expressive power of ordinary objects!

I've always thought gravity was a mighty force. It keeps us on solid ground afterall! Who knew it's actually the weakest among the four basic forces? Serena was able to demonstrate how magnetism beats gravity in this simple experiment.
Does your cereal sometimes taste a bit... metallic? After mixing some ground "iron packed" cereal with water, Serena used a strong magnet to pull from the slurry a minuscule amount of iron (see the black dot?) and move it around at the bottom of the cup.
If you must know, the four basic forces from strongest to weakest are: strong nuclear force, electromagnetism, weak nuclear force, and gravity.
