Our pink elephant grew a little bit overnight! Here are some of our observations:

Angelo: It's big!

Zara: It's gonna be green now?

Joseph: It's green now. Green! It's growing! (It's still pink)

Charlie: Big!

Dylan: It's gonna be blue.

Bowen: It's pink. It looks like an elephant. 

Angelo: The elephant is eating it (the water). 

Dylan: I forgot blue in the store. It's going to turn it blue. 

Olli: Uh-oh. What this is?

Lara: Elephant! Pink pink!

Joseph: What's in the water? Elephant!

Bowen: It's gonna get bigger, Joseph.

Joseph: I want to get it out.

We will observe our elephant again on Monday and see if it's gotten any bigger. It's been a really wonderful conversation starter, and we've grown an attachment to our little elephant already!
