Austin Nature Center demo

My kids loved Science Day at a local elementary school where they were invited by Steve Wolf of the Wolf Stunt Ranch to come to his Science in the Movies presentation while I took photos. I pulled them out of school to go to school, oddly enough, but any opportunity for an educational field trip is welcome! After the show, they went to the Austin Nature and Science Center demo for some close encounters with other little creatures.

Anything for Mom

A few years ago my mom said my sister had put some "kidisms" on her blog and asked if I would send her an email with all the cute and funny things my kids said. She wanted to collect them for her grandkids and put them in a notebook. So I dutifully started writing things down in an email, saving up a list to send to her. I never sent it before she died, and it's still a draft in my inbox, still receiving additions when every so often my kids say one of the darndest things! So there it is over there, on the sidebar, so others can enjoy it with her. I'll add new ones to the top when my kids are clever or, as is more often the case with kidisms, not so clever.
