Saturday we went to http://www.sciworks.org   It was a lot of fun.  We have visited several science centers this summer and for me this was the best.  So much hands on activities for everyone.  I did remember to take my camera, however, I didn’t think about batteries.  Therefore no pictures of all the fun stuff inside.  You can tell though how excited Daniel was to be there by the picture I did get.

Yesterday we went to the http://www.greensboroscience.org.

We have been there once this summer but not since they put in the aquarium.  It was awesome!

The highlight of the visit was touching a stingray!

You can’t really see him but Sam is in there too and Katie even got in on the action.  First time for us to “pet” one.  Another first for me yesterday was touching a snake.  Not sure if I want to touch another one or not but it was not near as bad as I imagined.

We are canning rhubarb today so I better get off and get busy.  I hope you have a wonderful day and God bless.

Leaves Everywhere

This picture was taken the other day when we went on our hike.  Absolutely beautiful.  Leaves were everywhere.  They sounded so nice when we walked on them.  Of course the batteries died in the camera before I got any other shots but this one is nice.  On our hike we spotted a baby possum walking on a log.  This would have been a great picture but the camera hung useless around my neck because we didn’t think to take extra batteries with us.   Oh well, life goes on.  We had a great hike and enjoyed outside time.  Today is overcast and slightly chilly.  Just enough to need a fire.  George and a friend of ours from church cut wood yesterday afternoon.  We heat this old farmhouse with wood and it takes a LOT of wood.  If the rain holds off we will be splitting and stacking the wood this evening.  Always work to do.  Speaking of work, lunch break is over and time for school.  Gotta go.  God Bless.
