Some things just happen, unplanned, but it's probably the best life lessons we have had this week:
My boys had their first encounter with the manual juicer.
I was eating an orange at my mum's and Micah asked for some juice to be squeezed into his cup. He actually just had some juice from a box. So since the orange were already quartered, I squeezed them with my hand. The he asked for more. So Ah Mah got out another fruit and her ever faithful glass juicer.
After one fruit squeezed and drunk, Micah asked for more. This time, Max wanted to see what all the fuss was too. So like an experiment in a lab, both the boys got a go at squeezing, pouring (yes, spilling some too) and drinking fresh-hand-squeezed orange juice.
As we were washing up, Micah noticed two funnels at the sink and insisted he wanted to try them out. I was hesitant, as we were suppose to head home (grandma already looking tired) but I let him have some time on his own with the funnel in the bath room while I packed up our stuff. A funnel, a bottle, a cup and a built in tank in the bathroom. The only thing that I was upset about was water wasted when he spilled, rather, over filled the cup before pouring it through the funnel.
Then as we were leaving, Micah headed for the Ixora bush just by the gate. We had done this some time back, but now it was like a refreshers' course for him. Tasting what a butterfly eats: nectar straight from the flower. The first few flowers were dry, so no nectar. The we tried another bunch of flowers. Mmmm...mmmm. Heaven made delight!
Pretty good science class today. Tasty one too.
