Our new town is rubbing off on Eli. We are surrounded by scientists of every kind. We have made friends with some older retired men in the ward and they are nuclear/mechanical/chemical engineers or physicists. When we have people over for dinner the first thing he wants to know is, "are you a scientist?" On Easter Sunday we had one man in his eighties over and he brought an all organic homemade pumpkin pie. There were alot of people and only one pie so naturally, I cut it into small slices. So the next day this was the e-mail he sent me.
" Millers, thank you for the lovely dinner. I was glad to see that you knew to cut the pie in 22.5 sectors so everyone had an equal piece."
This made me smile. He is so darling. So maybe I am smarter than I thought. It was instinct to cut the pie into 22.5 sectors. Way to go Annie! Tonight Eli declared,"I want to be a scientist. This is my science lab where I can do experiments. I want a microscope." Then he sat down and dabbled with his 3.00 electronics lab (thank you thrift store).
So we all gathered around to see the light bulb light up. He was using a butter knife conduct the electricity. For those of you who may need a little explanation here is what he explained to us. this is word for word.
"The magnetic photons go through the geraniums that go through the magtaniums which go to the drioxide cells and make the hydrolic figure go into the light and makes is light up."
There you have it folks, straight from the mad scientist himself. If you do not understand he will explain it when you are older.
