Fur Friday – Eggcellent

Welcome to Fur Friday where I post a random picture (or more) of some of our pets and maybe write a thing or two about it.

Today Cody called us out into the backyard to witness the end results of a random science experiment. It involved soaking eggs in vinegar to see what would happen. Then he decided to drop them onto the concrete basketball pad in our yard as a grand finale.

The dogs enjoyed the show.

In case you were wondering, the eggs broke. It was nasty; the boys thought it was great. The nasty egg sludge was washed into the grass where I am sure Sasha will find it in a day or two and enjoy a lengthy roll around in it before coming into the house to sleep on my side of the bed.

The egg on the left was left to soak in vinegar for a couple days. The egg on the right is the control egg.

    Phew! You are quite the brave lady and supportive mom by encouraging these interesting experiments. πŸ™‚ You definitely met your calling by becoming a teacher.

      I may have to rethink allowing experiments that end with rotten, vinegar soaked eggs in our backyard, but yeah, I’m pretty alright with most science experiments.
      Indeed I did – I do love teaching!
