A Day at the Museum

My thought for Science Friday last week was to take the boys to the McWane Center, but I was too tired to think about taking five boys by myself. To big to be content to stay in a stroller and too adventuresome to trust to stay glued to my side, Sebastian needs a few more months on him–he tends to wander off when I’m not looking and with four other boys and science exhibits to look at, that can be pretty often. So we stayed home and made a volcano in the sink and experimented in making our own ph testing solution out of red cabbage. It worked marvelously on baking soda/water solution and in vinegar changing to hot pink and green. We tried testing a few other things–spit and urine–which was amusing but didn’t have any impressive results. It did involve teaching Sebastian not to routinely spit in his cup.

Saturday Adam joined us at the McWane center. It is so much easier with another grown-up: two more eyes, another two responsible hands in the tight parking garage, not having to parade everyone to the bathroom when one child needs to go. We had a wonderful time. (And Sebastian only escaped once from the preschool play area.)IMG_0883 IMG_0886 IMG_0889 IMG_0890 IMG_0893 IMG_0894 IMG_0895 IMG_0900 IMG_0901 IMG_0903


About Wendy McCollum

I am a single mom to five wonderful boys. Life is an adventure, with many twists and turns. We live in hope, always, for our great God can redeem all things. There are so many funny and precious moments that slip by too fast. Perhaps here I can save them for when my own memory fails.
