I couldn't resist.
After a bit, I replaced her small paperclip with a larger one.
I wish you could have seen her face, hands clasped over her mouth, as she gasped when she saw it. (The fact that it was no longer pink didn't seem to matter in the least!) She made sure everyone knew what had happened!
Her curiosity piqued, she decided to leave it for a while longer to see if it would grow even more...
No way! By this time a couple of her brothers were torn. Could this be real? Sadie and Soren both left for school Monday morning determined to tell their teachers all about the successful experiment!
I knew I was in trouble when I saw a slew of small paperclips in a puddle of water the next day...
Ah, to be six again!
This story unfolded just as written, but all photos are recreations of the event using the actual paperclips. :)
