Science project show

Science project

"Today was our science electricity project show. I completely forgot to remind Mama & Papa (they had had the invitation a while ago) - so they didn't come but it still was fun. Some people's circuits broke down just that day... Lot's of people commented on mine!! I'M SO PROUD!!" 
                              ~ M., 10 years old

I still feel miserable that neither one of us made it to M.'s science project show - she so much deserved it for us being there. I forgot about the show when I made the appointment to go in to sign our new rental agreement and K. had meetings all day. When I realized I'd missed it, I felt like I could kill myself. 
I'm so proud of my little girl, of her project, of the grown-up way she dealt with the fact we didn't come to see her. Next week she has an art show and you bet I'll be there!!

A quick word about the cat: M. learned about parallel circuits in science class and got an assignment to build something around /in/with a shoebox, two or three light bulbs, two or three switches, electrical wire and a battery.  M. wanted to build a cat nightlight. We were lucky to find a cardboard papier mâché cat at the crafts store. The head had to be cut off in order to insert the eyes/ light bulbs and all off the wiring and then patched together again (once made sure everything worked correctly). The battery and switches went neatly under the box. It wasn't an easy project, but definitely a fun and interesting one - even K. and me learned a thing or two about parallel circuits...
We are so proud of our little girl...

ms. m. your electric cat is the cat's pajamas and that means 'the best'! you are such a smart girl and it's no surprise that yours did not break. it's also beautifully-designed.

the best part is that you could show your parents at home and don't feel too badly about them not making it to the science show this time. they won't let it happen again and you can count on that.

have a nice weekend!

Ah, de spreekwoordelijke appel! En een stoere meid ook nog! Geen schuldgevoel, maar trots is op z'n plaats.

now there's a cool cat - and just like my Robbie, who also happens to be a cool cat - it's only wearing three socks. and just like Robbie, and all the other cool cats, it's eyes can glow in the dark. ;-)
