The girls are working on a culinary badge in Girl Scouts and last week they brought recipes from the past. We ended up with a range of things that they declared a "great meal" - some Matzo ball soup, a potato dish that was allegedly the origin of french fries, a gingerbread cake (Yaya) and rainbow jello (Kiki). Cute!
I have always wanted to be an FBI agent - that's what I would have picked for a career if I didn't have kids so I was super excited when the girls in our Girl Scout troop decided to work on a forensic science badge. Last night we talked about how forensic scientists study blood spatter and fingerprints and shoe prints and other evidence to help them determine what happened at a crime scene. The girls spattered stage blood onto paper with droppers (and did some other art also), guessed each other's shoe prints, and looked at fingerprints with a magnifying glass to determine what patterns they had on their fingerprints. All of them are into talking about dysptopian stuff so they were excited.
