How to remove a splinter, by Sydney

Friday, November 29, 2013
Sorry I've been away for so long.  It's been so busy with business photos!

Last week right after I said to Sydney, "You're not wearing the right shoes to be doing that," she decided that I didn't know what I was talking about, and climbed up a hill filled with brush, prickly ground cover, and trees.  She came out with a big splinter.  I tried to remove the splinter so we could go onto our next play date, but she yelped and screamed, so I had to quit.

Jason came home that night and again tried to remove the splinter, also failed due to her yelping and screaming.  The neighbor even gave it a shot, but realized pretty quickly that Syd is not a great patient!

Finally, on the evening of day two having a splinter that was now red and super sore, she let Daddy give it another shot.  To distract herself she used the iPad to research splinter removal, and documented the process.  Here are her tips:

And, here's what came out of her foot!  Ouch!  

5th Grade Science

Our elementary school won a grant a year or so ago, and got money to be able to host really cool Science nights for the kids each year.  First up was 5th grade, Syd said it was "the most awesome night ever!"  Her favorite part was making "real snow".  Here are a few pics - with Mom on the yearbook team, we have to capture pics everywhere!
