This weekend launched Issa's very first science fair project. We haven't been eating as many potatoes these days, so we had some that sprouted. It became her inspiration. "Light and Dark," as Issa has named it, is an experiment about the effect of light and dark on a plant and a potato.
She bought two little plants and chose some sprouted potatoes. She placed one pair on the wine rack:
As much as I love watching Issa jump in to her first experiment, I love watching Daddy help even more. He is so good, and he is helping her learn so much about the scientific method.
