This is my simple photo journal. I like to take pictures and once a month or more, I load them onto this blog so that we can remember some of our family highlights.


Ike and I headed down to the science fair this morning. We wanted to say hi to Cole and see all the wonderful science projects the sixth graders have been working on. Before we walked in to the science fair, Isaac was trying to convince me that it would be o.k. to tell everyone that he is a first grader and I was for sure not to bring up the fact that he was in preschool. I told him that no one was even going to ask or care how old he was. "Its just fun for Cole's friends to meet you." He gets so embarrassed that he is in preschool. Maybe its a youngest child thing.

There were some great projects. And all those kids were so cute sitting by their displays. They were happy to be out of class for a couple of hours, while all the other grades walk through the science fair. Our school is really strict about outside classroom/instruction time. It was fun to run into Summer walking through. Sorry we missed Meg.

Cole's project was on hand grip strength between dominant vs. non-dominant hands. Tom got him started with the idea and then Cole ran the experiment. Thanks to all of his willing test subjects. The conclusion to his science project was that our hand grip strength differs greater between our dominant and non-dominant hands as we age. He won second place. Good work Cole, now you can relax and enjoy the final days of elementary school.
