Plant Cell Cake


Woke up at 7am to take Kyle to his early soccer match, which was only 20 minutes away in Brentwood.  I was prepared with long sleeved running shirt and gloves, and once I found someone to watch my jacket (keys and wallet), I took to a leisurely run.  There is something about those early morning runs, where I have more energy or just feel like it’s an easier run.  5 miles around the Brentwood soccer fields and I could have gone longer except I didn’t want to miss the start of the game.

Kyle’s team played ok, but for some reason just could not get it together.  Their opponent, Mattituck, a team they have beaten several times before seemed more determined.  In the end, Mattituck took the lead, and finished with a 2-1 win.  That’s how it goes sometimes.  They are playing indoor soccer (Futsal) tonight…is there too much soccer ?

Luke and Sue baked a cake, which is the basic building block of his science project.  He needs to create a model of an Animal or Plant Cell.  This is a project that not only looks good, but tastes good too.  Once out of the shower, Luke and I go to the store from some food dye.  We decided that different colored icing would be a good idea to differentiate the structures of the cell.  Decorating went well, and the cake is ready to make its way into school tomorrow. 

This day in history “The first session of the U.S. Congress is held in New York City as the U.S. Constitution takes effect. However, of the 22 senators and 59 representatives called to represent the 11 states who had ratified the document, only nine senators and 13 representatives showed up to begin negotiations for its amendment.”

I could dedicate a whole blog on U.S. Congress and where it has gone in recent years.  Let’s just say it seems less impressive now than when it was first formed.

We get to the HS for Kyle’s futsal playoff game, and the team they should be playing is a no-show.  Instead of having the team leave, they scrimmage against a slit MC United team.  It was nice to see them fool around and have fun.  I am sure they miss goofing off and fooling around as much as we as parents liked watching them.

Cell Wall, Cell Membrane, Chloroplast, Mitochondria, Cytoplasm....etc.

How much do you remember.  Just think, some lucky kid is going to get to eat the Nucleus !!
