Summer Vacation - Day 51

One week until Kindergarten!!

Joseph wrote out his whole name today with out looking or any coaching.  ("Hey mom, does E come next?")  He has worked hard on it this summer and has it down pat now. 

We also did a little science experiment.  He has been listening to a song about colors and what they become when you mix them.  So we had to put it to the test and see if the song was right.  It was. 

 Blue & Red make Purple.
 Blue & Yellow make Green.
And Red & Yellow make Orange!

Speaking of orange. . . . . we had mexican stuffed peppers for dinner.  It was another experiment that worked.

 Basically I made an enchilada filling and put it in orange bell pepper halves.

 I covered it with homemade enchilada sauce and sharp cheddar cheese.  (I don't know why they even bother to make mild cheddar cheese?  But that's another conversation. .. )
 And served it on yummy rice.  The whole family ate it up!  :)
