I just realized I forgot to come back and share the rest of the story about the very long ladles from last week's Wordless Wednesday.
In biology, the boys were required to collect pond water for some cultures. They were instructed to go down a little deeper into the pond rather than right at the edge. We have four jars that have various types of food in them - rice, egg yolk (hard boiled), dried grass, and dirt. We'll be preparing slides to take a look at what grew in our cultures probably tomorrow. I'll be sure and get some photos to share.
So the ladle was duct-taped onto a broom (actually Swiffer) handle. Some people looked at us a little funny while at the park. Doesn't everyone take very long-handled ladles to the pond?
