To Jump or Not to Jump

Wondering what it is that the kids are looking at?


It’s a jumping bean that one of Zoe’s friends sent her in the mail. They thought the bean would jump in the cold, so Zoe put it in the refrigerator.

It died.

But, they thought maybe if they brought it out into the sun it might just jump.

It didn’t.

So, what was the next logical thing to do?

Break it open and see what made it jump! Yuck! It sure was a nasty little creature inside that bean!

Great photo! I remember we used to get those things all the time when I was a kid.

Yeah... bugs are in those beans... that's what makes them jump around. *shudder* Thank you for not posting photos of the bug!

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
