Blake decided to do a science fair project which involved using fish. Both of us were against this for quite a few reasons. Blake finally talked us into it. He took two goldfish and kept them in separate tanks. Then he took them both into a dark room and shined a black light on one fish. His hypothesis was: Do fish turn black, white, or stay the same color by shining a black light on them or does darkness have the same effect? He predicted that shining fish one who he named Rockstar with the black light would turn white. Rockstar didn't turn white and unfortunately he passed away. Monster aka fish two did not turn white either when he was left in the dark room. Yesterday afternoon the parents were invited to see all the science fair projects at the school. There were some great ideas and then quite a few how quick does an ice cube melt and what cleans a penny projects! The kids did a great job. And I'm happy to report that Monster is doing well and lives in an aquarium on my kitchen counter!
I was confirmed on May 7th at St. Rose Catholic Church. I was never confirmed as a teenager and decided it was time to do it. My friend Dana was my sponsor and my confirmation name is Gianna after St. Gianna Beretta Molla. St. Gianna was a Catholic Wife, Mother, and Doctor, and she was canonized by the Pope in Rome on May 16, 2004. It was a beautiful ceremony and I was surrounded by Gary, Blake, Evan, Kendall, my parents, sister, Dana, Bill, Brady and Breana.
Kendall and her friend Addie decided to give each other haircuts one morning. Kendall had her hair cut first and then as Kendall was starting to cut Addie's hair Michelle caught them. Kendall's hair took the brunt of the haircuts. Michelle handed me a bag full of Kendall's hair! She was so worried that Gary and I would be mad that her hair was cut. We weren't we actually thought it was funny! Kendall got her hair cut the next day and it looks really cute!!
