According to C. your spirituality (and how you act) should be like the return we get from that planted mustard seed. Not necessarily showy, but a steady yield. It shouldn’t be like a mentos geyser. Flashy, lots of fun for the moment, and over quickly.
I wouldn’t have thought you could pull an object lesson out of doing mentos geysers for Family Home Evening, but I think he did a pretty good job.
Of course this was also all in the interest of science. We had to know if the number of mentos make a difference to the height of the geyser.
I’m also here to attest that there was absolutely no fizz left in the soda.
It was awesome.

WHOA!!!! this is so cool – you guys are like the myth busters!! and I love that you can bring spirituality into a science trick C. !! Annica was asking about C. the other day – “who was that boy that came to the baseball game with us again mommy? And whats his friend’s name? (greg)”
What a great FHE lesson! I’m so impressed! I’ve always wanted to try the mentos geyser thing…but then I kind of don’t want my boys to learn to make that kind of mess just yet! =) Your blog seriously makes me smile.
