I'm behind. Again. We've been sick with bronchitis, pneumonia, allergies, sinusitis.
My wild scientists at Wild Science Week at the Corpus Christi Science and History Museum.
Caleb excavating a "dinosaur."
Archaeologists use dental tools for precision. We started out that way, but after an hour of scraping away plaster of paris with a tooth pick, we asked for a hammer.
My kids, along with two of my fellow homeschooling moms' kids, enjoyed an impromptu rock lesson.
Caleb was chosen to participate in the Museum's annual Wild Science Week Turtle Race. He held a mealworm in front of the turtle, named Henry, and urged him to victory.
We were all thrilled when Henry won, especially Henry who happily devoured his breakfast, which he worked hard for.
A friend invited us to her condo complex which has a pool in the back yard. The first of many spring/summer swims.
We were all at the doctor's office 4 times in 10 days. We tried to keep our good humor, especially when at this one, we had to wait in the examining room for an hour before the doctor came back from his lunch break smelling like tacos and peppermint gum.
When Rob finally got back from San Diego, we went out to eat and we all shared this humongous, glorious, decadent ice-cream/chocolate chip cookie/mocha syrup treat. Gabe ate as fast as possible and was not fun to share with. Can you see the wild, sugar-crazed look in his eyes?
