We finished reading The Little House in the Big Woods out loud, so now we've started reading the next book in the series, Farmer Boy.

In one chapter, the main character, Almanzo, is sitting around with his family eating corn popped over the fire. He says to himself:

"You can fill a glass to the brim with milk, and fill another glass of the same size brim full of popcorn, and then you can put all the popcorn kernel by kernel into the milk and the milk will not run over. You cannot do this with bread. Popcorn and milk are the only two things that will go into the same place."

We were intrigued by Almanzo's claim, so Norah and I tried it.

Fun experiment- we are still on the first book. Maybe we'll give it a try, when we get to that book!
