Juice anyone???????

A while back I told you I would explain the science experiment weekend, so here goes.

Both my older girls needed to come up with science experiments. They both decided to see how much Vitamin C is in different juices. M1 picked apple, grape, cranberry, orange, V-8 and pineapple juices to test. M2 picked fresh squeezed, refrigerated, frozen and off the shelf orange juices to test. Here's where the fun comes in. HUBBY goes to the store to get the juices.

Yup, you guessed it, FULL SIZE bottles of every stinking juice on the list. Geesh. We had juice around for quite some time. No scurvy in our family.

Paid off though.

M1, who is in 7th grade, got an "A".

And M2, who is in 5th grade, won 1st place at the elementary school science fair.

(Got the phone call that she was receiving an award and we should try to be there last Thursday. The science fair was Thursday night. I missed another Belly Dance Lesson.)

Sometimes it sucks to have smart kids.

Moral of this story, don't send hubby to the grocery store with less than a VERY detailed list.

Reminds me of that episode of Everybody Loves Raymond when Raymond signed his parents up for the *Fruit of the Month Club*...

"What am I supposed to do with all of this fruit?!?!????"
