The BEST Educational Gift

After I typed the title I started thinking how BOOKS are the best educational gift ever, but having the title: "The Second BEST Educational Gift" isn't quite so catchy. So there's my disclaimer. {Grin}

Little Miss will be celebrating her eight (!!!) birthday soon, so when Grandma and Grandpa were here, they gave their present to her early.

Yes! A microscope! (The second best educational gift!)

This is so embarrassing to admit, but we already have a microscope. Somewhere. From Grandma and Grandpa. Yes, this is the second microscope Grandma and Grandpa gave our family. We have looked high and low for the first one, but can not find it. We still have some of our belongings boxed up from our move in 2010-2011, but we've even looked at those boxes. Twice.

The only excuse reason I have is our nomadic life can be a bit unorganized crazy challenging, so some things have been misplaced in the last few years.

We, especially Little Miss, are so grateful Grandma and Grandpa didn't mind giving us a second one. It has already brought so much joy to Little Miss' school days.

And we promise to keep track of this one!

Thank You, Grandma and Grandpa!!!!


  1. We need one of those. Need may be a strong word. We really WANT one of those. Are these pictures taken with your phone or your camera? Very nice.

  2. Heidi, our older microscope is better than this, so I am still hoping we'll find it. Before this one arrived I was googling "sand magnified 200x" etc, that worked too!

    I took these with my camera. Thank you:)

  3. Oh. The kids are getting so...grown up! Look at your son! I guess this is what happens when you take a break from blogging for a while, huh? Thanks for stopping in during my hiatus! Enjoy that microscope!

  4. Jessy, isn't that awful!! I keep telling them not to grow up. And now my littlest, too. Almost 8!
