So, this weekend I packed up my family and took them on a weekend trip to a science center just a few hours away. What could be more relaxing for a Mother's Day weekend?? Alright, so maybe there wasn't a lot of relaxing, but there WAS a lot of FUN and LEARNING! The last time we went to the science center, my oldest was 4 and my middle girl was only 18 months. I thought we were due for another trip. I knew my oldest would love it (she is so totally into everything science), but I was surprised how much the younger two got out of it. They all had a blast (and so did their mommy and daddy)!
They planted trees, touched a snake, built a water system, saw a planetarium, fed baby birds, explored with magnets, counted fish, searched for fossils, lay on a bed of nails, wore moose antlers, repaired a turtle shell, sat in a geode, constructed simple machines, replaced organs inside a body ... and did it all with such wide-eyed excitement and enthusiasm.
At that science center, something incredible WAS discovered. And my three little girls left ... on top of the world!
