Blue Skies and Gak Attack!

Sky for Sandy.

The hot Texas sun blazing down on the first day of fall (yesterday). Because the first day of fall should always be over 100F.

The stuff "dripping" off the table is Gak, a.k.a. Silly Slime. This is a fabulous thing to make with children.

Unfortunately, I can't find the recipe right now but it's basically a solution of water with borax dissolved into it mixed with a solution of water and glue and a bit of food coloring. Mix the two solutions together and knead and you get a Silly Putty-type substance with a bit more viscosity.

For a Suessical twist on the whole thing, Bean's friend Zack came over this weekend. So, we made Gak with Zack!
