We decided to make a little Krill & Whale experiment. We came up with oats to use as Krill and a big jar for a whale.
Seth was kind enough to let us intrude on his bath.
Some of the observers hanging out on the side of the tub:
Penguins from the movie Happy Feet, which also happens to touch a bit on tagging/researching/human impact on wildlife. I just love it -- connections, connections everywhere, even on the side of our bathtub.
Some of our oatmeal krill sank to the bottom but other pieces floated. Here is the "whale" going after his food.
Before moving on to other things, Ri decided he wanted to work a sea life floor puzzle we've had for a long time. We talked about things from Finding Nemo, from our own trips to the ocean, from things we've read, and from visits to the Aquarium.
Pablo wondered why we were so interested in stinkin' sea creature puzzles when we have a perfectly cute puppy to shower with our undivided attention.
The joy of finally finding where that darn piece was supposed to go.
For future reference (or not), or for anyone else interested, I found some more cool stuff related to the National Geographic article on their website, here.
