The girls didn't have school yesterday,
which was glorious after the intense chaotic pace of the weekend.
Except McDaniel had lifting bright and early
and then basketball in the afternoon.
But we did manage to tackle Ellie's science project in between lifting and basketball practice.
Ellie decided to do a video skit explaining the attributes of the minerals gold, diamond and corundum.
She cast us as the dramatic players,
Of course, Ellie wrote herself as the star, Gold.
|Gold is a self-centered sassy thing.|
Me as her tiara-wearing nemesis, Diamond.
|Diamond is not lacking in self-esteem|
either. Oh, I do regret the shoulder
showing. It is for 6th grade science,
for the love of Pete.
And McDaniel as the over dramatic,
Corundum, that has a southern accent
that comes and goes.
|Corundum didn't bother to take off her slippers.|
|Not sure why she is in the street.|
Or covered in leaves.
McDaniel went off-script with all the drama and imbalance and accents.
But Ellie allowed it.
It was quite the soap opera
with off-camera staring,
All neatly wrapped up by the soundtrack
And all in the name of science.
**I'd show you the final video but I am afraid it doesn't accurately represent the full mental capacities of the parties living under our roof. Or maybe it does. But we need our girls to get into college one day. Plus, I regret the whole shoulder showing part.**
