We got to taste and smell various powders; pepper, jello, cocoa, salt, sugar. When asked what they thought each was, one of the little boys said "sugar" for everything from jello to black pepper!
Below I've posted the audio file of sounds that we made so that we could learn more about hearing.
Ben is back home after a trip to Texas, for work, and Colorado, for play. Ok, so the Colorado wasn't just play- he went to see his brother Jeremiah. They seem to have enjoyed it, and I am enjoying having Ben back to myself- with a couple (make that a few) munchkins in between!
