...the giddy feeling you get when all of the science projects are done for the year. Yes. Yes, my fellow parents; it's a heady, wonderful feeling...is it not? *smile*
I'm proud to say that this year was comparatively drama free. Wooooot! No tears. No meltdowns on the part of the children...or the adults. No one lost an eye (always a plus!). And, no one will be kicked out for having an experiment that could put the general population at risk. Good year. I'll take pics on the night of the actual fair. And, THIS YEAR, I'm going to take pics of all the Jesus-based science projects. As I've said before, the kids are at a school that is quite heavy on the ID'ers. One year, a kid did a "science project" about the type of wood he thought Noah's Ark was built with. But, it wasn't even a science project because all he'd done is gone down to the lumber yard and got chips of different kinds of wood and then hypothesized about how each would would've been used. It was lame...and I usually don't criticize the work of children. I just don't think Noah, if he was an actual person, had access to pine and ash or, the my favorite from this kid's board, balsa wood. The next year, the same kid did a "science project" on how dinosaurs lived with man. He ACTUALLY used pictures of the Flintstones on his board and said, "dinosaurs and man have depicted for centuries in art." *giggle* You know...I had this unicorn folder, as a kid, and it showed a unicorn with a naked half-goat guy standing next to it...that must confirm the existence, and co-existence, of the unicorn and "goat guy". Where's my science fair ribbon??
Happiness is...having a five year old who's not afraid to look like a bad 1980's, travestite version of John McEnroe. :) Amy and Mary...I know you're jealous of her style.
For those who can't see the detail in the pic, she's wearing; a tie-dyed shirt, a rainbow headband, yellow safety goggles, and a red track pants with a white stripe down the side. You go, sista' friend! Dare to be different!
