Friday, April 24, 2009


Yes, we're still here. I guess there's nothing exciting going on in our lives right now worth blogging about. I haven't even had the camera out....
Today is just beautiful - 20* C - I can see the leaf buds coming out on the trees, just beautiful! The gardens at the school are full of surprises too! Lots of tulips, hyacinths, and forsythia in bloom right now. In need of a good pruning, but still lovely.
I hope you're all enjoying this spring weather as well.

Redeemer Science Fair!

Last night another Mom and I took our CCS participants to Ancaster for the Redeemer College University Science Fair. Tim, Cody and Byron were all very excited to go, especially since they were all having a sleepover at Cody's grandparents!
We arrived shortly after 5, found our tables, set up the boys' boards, and had a look at the other projects. Some really neat stuff there, including at least 2 hovercrafts and one trebuchet. Our boys entries fit right in, Tim's on Memory Games, Cody's comparing types of insulation, and Byron built his own lava lamp.

We hit Wendy's for supper, and then headed back for the Antics With Atoms Opening Presentation. Barbara, Bethany and Jeremy met us there too. What a great program! Thoroughly enjoyed by adults and kids alike. Tim and Bethany both got asked to come up and help with a demonstration. Bethany was hoping to get Tim wet, but the window screen held all the water in the jar! We also saw exploding cornstarch, colour changing liquid, smoke rings and a sunset!

Today the boys had Interviews (part of the judging process), then Science Olympics and other activities. Even if they don't get an award, a worthwhile and enjoyable day!
And now, off to see the Grade 1/2 Easter Assembly, and then preparing for extra guests this weekend. The Easter Roots Conference is being hosted by London YPS, so we have 4 extra girls sleeping here! Looks to be a busy but fun weekend.
Have a Blessed Easter everyone!
