Why"March Inn?" March Inn was the name of that magic place where I spent my summers growing up. I have alluded to this place before, and I probably will again. March Inn is no longer standing. The waters of Katrina rendered it unlivable so my children will never know that "March Inn." That makes me sad. In fact it brings me to tears whenever I think about it. I want my children to have their own "March Inn," and I want to capture our lives as they are growing and changing. I invite you to "march inn" to our lives. My hope is that you will catch glimpses of the real world. You will see our creations. You will see our chaos. You will see our affection. You will also see our frustrations, fears, and disappointments. Enjoy your march!

I alluded to my girls making concoctions. Recently, Mary Frances has loved what they have been doing in science. She has been studying chemistry, and she often comes home asking to mix and make things. One Saturday, I said yes. Then I remembered I had this book:
We flipped through it together and landed on Gooey Gunk. I had all of the ingredients, and it looked interesting. We made it together. But for food coloring getting into the hands of a two year old and then going everywhere, we had fun!
It provided hours of entertainment for all!
How it works, I'm not sure, but it was quick to put together and does not make a mess.
The only problem now is that MFS has hidden it so I can't pull it out for her siblings when I need some quiet entertainment.
An activity that bridges the gap between my bookends is a huge win in our house!
