Bonding through A Love of Science

Welcome to Team Whymommy's Virtual Science Fair! Today we are celebrating a very special woman by celebrating her love of science.

Here's why:

Science is cool

Susan is amazing

Experimenting and exploring science with your kids is a great opportunity to bond

And now I get to bond with some fellow bloggers to show support for a woman who has changed the way I think about family time. That is, I appreciate every little moment...even the annoying ones.

No, onto science

Our favorite science activity as a family is searching for shooting stars.

The best thing I ever did was get a fire pit from Lowes. This fire pit has replaced TV on many Friday nights.

Twins ready to toast marshmallows and look at stars

Last year we woke the girls up in the middle of the night 2 nights in row one week (yes, school nights) during a meteor shower just to give them a glimpse of it. And now it's become a regular thing. We sit outside, enjoy the fire, and look for shooting stars as we discuss planets and stars.

The Twofer know many of the planets in our own solar system. They even know the ones that have rings. But the size and scope and beginnings of the Universe are tough to grasp and so a night outside with the fire pit always leads to many more questions that we can answer.

And that's the part I love. For without questions, we wouldn't learn. Without exploration, whether it be in space or inside the human body, we wouldn't have knowledge. And without science we can't fight find a cure for cancer...or at least give it a little kick in the ass.

Now, who wants to come over for the next fire? Bring marshmallows and a telescope.

Um. I want to come over. My kids love fires and looking at the night sky. Your post totally took me emotionally to our summer vacations when we have fires and make smores with the little dudes and watch the stars. It's so much fun!

Thanks so much for taking part in the science fair!

Some time before, I did need to buy a good house for my business but I didn't have enough money and couldn't purchase something. Thank heaven my fellow proposed to take the mortgage loans from reliable creditors. So, I acted that and used to be happy with my small business loan.

reminds me of sitting on grams and gramps deck in the Berkshires looking at stars thru the telescope or simply reclined in one of teh chairs with a blanket looking for shooting stars. I remember grams waking me up at like 3am to watch a lunar eclipse too. Great tradition to carry on neen...
