Here the kids are practicing being a cantalever bridge - a bridge that is supported on one side. Jordie and Addie are the cantalevers - Lexie is the beam bridge in the middle!
The kids have now made the beam bridge stronger by putting an arch in - just like the Romans!
Now we're experimenting to see what shape is the strongest.
Definitely not a square!
Barb and I spent a few days at the coast last week. The owners of the beach house where we stayed offered us a few nights if we would clean the stove and refrigerator. Now mind you I don't believe these two appliances had been cleaned for many years. The freezer portion was so iced up that it looked like the entry to an igloo and the gunk burned into the stove top and oven were pretty scary. Of course these are early 70's appliances so no frost free refrigerator and self-cleaning oven for us.
While I worked on the stove and refrigerator Barb, the busy little bee whipped through the rest of the kitchen cleaning and
cursing whistling while she worked. She also cleaned and dusted everything in the living room as well....even the light fixtures, pictures and cobwebs. I am sorry now that I didn't take a picture of the before and after of these extremely filthy fun chores. But perhaps it is better if you don't see the before.
