So, creation science it is, lol! He is so far delighted with this book. We went quickly over the six days of creation, a little bit about water, and a little bit about atoms. He was especially fascinated by the description of how all the positive protons in an atom stick close to the nucleus. He is familiar with the concept of like charges repelling one another because he loves magnets. :)
He snorted loudly when I explained (from the book) that some scientists have decided there must invisible particles called gluons that hold the protons together.

One day the boys needed an occupation while I worked on a complicated meal in our crowded, cluttered, half finished(speaking generously) kitchen. I assigned Critter #1 a pretend salad...
