My brilliant children

Elephant's science fair project this year was on parasites:

He had three categories: micro, macro and entertaining. What's "entertaining" you ask? Try Mustafar lava fleas (from "Star Wars"), ear worms (from "SpongeBob") and Pokemon (there's a bug type, apparently). Pokemon is banned from his school, so I scored some serious Cool Mom cred by pointing out that he could hardly get in trouble by including them on a SCIENCE FAIR display, now could he?


And here's Butterfly at the beginning of creation:
I love that she DEMANDS to paint. I would never dream of stifling such ambition.

I love these two.
