Last night we did our family science fair project, racing cars down ramps – so cool. The steeper the ramp the further the cars traveled because of the effect of gravity. I had the fastest car. Apparently that’s because my car had less friction, either that or a better driver.
Tonight we got to present our project at the office and see lots of other cool sciency stuff like learning about static electricity, how salt melts ice and how magnets work, the solar system, what’s in our blood, making dinosaur footprints and fossils, playing with a very agile robot and our personal favourite, making a phase of the moon from Oreo cookies.
It was so exciting to go on a surprise after-school adventure with Mum today. We first visited the Sweet Tooth shop to use my spin-the-wheel ticket that came home from school with my glowing school report. I had a most successful spin, winning a chocolate ice-cream shake! Then we went to the Library to finish off the 2×2 book list – now I’ve read them all and can hand in my report tomorrow. My favourite book was ‘The Princess in Black’.
I love Mummy and me time. Especially when it involves ice-cream and books.
I had an awesome day hanging out at Papi’s office for our MLK day holiday. He helped me with some homework and I did my sticker book. We went to lunch together and then we went to visit his office neighbour (a beauty supplies place). I admired this beautiful hair accessories set and he gave it to me!
