Flubber (or so it used to be called...)

I was informed that I dated myself by calling it "Flubber" and I literally had no idea, which in and of itself, dates me. Well it used to be called Flubber and now it is called something else but I forget what. I had about 10 bottles of Elmer's Glue, half used, a bunch of bored kids, and the school year is almost over! Who needs glue when we aren't in school? So I found a recipe and made Flubber! It's a fun little science experiment because of the quick chemical change that happens when you combine water and glue and then pour in some water/Borax. Instant fun. Both Easton and Annabel took a good 5 or 10 minutes to work up the courage to touch it, but then they realized it was fun and we are still playing with it.

Easton::Cast Update

It's off!! It's actually been off for just over a week, but I have been computer-less for a bit so no word from the blog-front. (Not to mention my life is crazier than it's ever been and there is no guarantee I would have blogged by now anyway!!)
So EASTON! I actually got his appointment moved up a couple days because his shredded cast was cutting into his feet and toes and causing him quite a bit of pain. So they squeezed him right in. THANK YOU!

We went back, straight to cast removal. They didn't even give him a chance to get worried. I told him to cover his ears and she just went to town. He looked at me with total panic, but he held it together. Did we want to save the cast?? Ummm, No.  We have pictures. That will be good enough! That thing was gross!

He is still limping and walking kinda funny, but I'm pretty sure his ankle is stiff and not quite back to normal. We are enjoying getting dressed, going to the bathroom, getting around, and taking baths with great ease! He doesn't have any pain and I don't care if we never have a broken bone (especially a leg) ever again!
