Starting out slowly.

I was so tired last night that I couldn't go to sleep and consequently slept in this morning to almost 9:00. It's after 11:00 a.m. right now and I haven't even started work. I'm having to do an update which I should have remembered to do yesterday and with our slow internet, it's probably going to take a while. While it's doing whatever it needs to do, I'm trying to plan the science day I agreed to do for the homeschool group on June 2. The main problem with it is deciding what to do. I want to out-do Mad Science. Remember when they came to our homeschool group meeting and I was completely underwhelmed. I want my science day to be more fun and more educational, actually, come to think of it, that shouldn't be all that hard. Even twice as fun and twice as educational isn't much to aim for. (Can you tell I was really, really not impressed by Mad Science?)

The last Mad Science program Violet went to was through the Girl Scouts. It was pretty good.

Do you have a topic in mind? I did one here for a few friends once that was about air pressure, flight, kites, that sort of thing. They made whirly gig helicopters and dropped them over the edge of our loft. That was a big hit.

We will see Mad Science again next week and maybe they'll be better.

I want to do alka-seltzer rockets, mentos and coke and somehow tie them in together with a nice little chemistry lesson. Got any ideas?
