Even though the temps were warm, we could do a few wintery NYC things like ice skating in Bryant Park. A February-break staycation is always fun when you get to catch up on city outings like this, and the rink wasn’t even crowded with tourists shockingly!

Well it’s that time of year again: time to make a poster board covered with information for the Science Fair at Ezra’s school. We like to do this as a Feb break project. When trapped indoors in the cold it’s always fun to turn to science for some lessons! Last year’s science project (documented below) involved making casein from regular hot milk and vinegar. Basically you can make plastic out of mammalian milk, which in the end pretty much grossed me out. But Ezra got a good lesson from it and even got a yellow ribbon on his board! This year we are going to try our hand at making BUTTER .. with a lot of shaking. I hope. Stay tuned! (And to see more on casein, click here.)
