I am enjoying all these end-of-the-year field trips I get to attend. This week Firstborn's class went to the Science Center, a hands-on, kids' museum here in our city. There is a big static-producing ball. Firstborn got to have a turn seeing what it might do to her hair.
Big Ben got to go along, per his sister's request. He was interested in all the exhibits until he found the "Reaction Time Driving Car." That was the end of his exploring; he found what he wanted. The only problem was that he could not reach the brake, so his reaction times were quite slow. Let's just say he will fit in well with Turkish drivers!
The Oasis 6th grade class!
And more than one Turkish teen glanced at our pretty, soon-to-be-teen girls. I think you can see why...
