Thanks Mr. Rismiller?

Good afternoon, it is Saturday.

Maren and Lillie are currently at a "girls day" being hosted by Carol. Both Maren and Lillie are hanging with their cousins talking girl stuff doing an ornament exchange and who knows what other girly stuff...shudder!

Me and the boys are doing just the opposite...boy stuff. Eating pizza and blowing up things! After our pizza and pop, Preston had an idea that we just needed to try! He learned it from his science teacher Mr. Rismiller. As a strange side note, Maren and Mr. Rismiller were in an elementary class together and one of my favorite guest pastors at Zion is Pastor Rismiller, Mr. Rismiller's dad. Ok, I've typed "Rismiller" enough times...let me just show you what we did:

The first video is the first 2 minutes. This is where Preston describes the experiment in detail, then it fails miserably.

This second video is the last minute. Preston got it right in this try...and we have some fun jokes and stuff going on.

So if you have a spare few minutes and you want to see what we do for fun around here, watch the videos!

See you tomorrow.
