Here is a short video of Grant making a circuit at the science fair!  The kit they had provided a book of instructions to follow in order for the circuit to produce different results!  The one he is building here makes a noise when it is made properly.  I LOVE the look on his face when he hears the sound!  Very Cool! 

Grant entered a project in the science fair this year!  He did an experiment to find the porosity in different rocks!  Tonight was the fair!  He and Maggie both had so much fun looking at all the projects and were both so proud of Grant's work!  The local kids science center was there and Grant found himself right at home building circuits (Papa King; you would have been so proud!) They were able to do a stomp rocket and made kazoos too! We had a really fun night!

Fashion it up!

Maggie's new obsession lately is fashion!  She loves to "fashion up" her stuffed animals, her dolls and most recently herself!! We had a fashion party the other day (just the two of us) and this is how she looked after we were done!  Good thing I have her to keep me looking good!

Build a Bear

We took a trip to Build with our good friends, the Kuney's, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day since the kids had the days off! ( True, it's not the most honorable way to honor Dr. King, however, you might notice the multiple colors of bears the kids chose so we did, in some small way, teach some tolerance of our differences!) When you visit the store after you already own a bear you can bring your bear back to be "groomed" and, of course, purchase clothes and accessories!  Grant and maggie brought their bears with us and picked out some sleeping bags for their bears! Our friends, Sammy Jo, Emma and Mitchell made brand new bears!  Super fun day!
