January 2017

Um .... I'm a little behind, so I'll be doing some retroactive updates:

We made a Rainbow Gummy Mustache:

W sniffed and touched books blindfolded to determine which book they were:

And most importantly, we protested:

And Q10 was an alternate on the Science Bowl. She disappointed that she wasn't on the team. The teacher told her that she basically picked alphabetically (WHAT?) and so my Q didn't get on the team. But they won, and are going onto the next round in a month or two!!!

Botanic Gardens

Every year I want to go to the Christmas Train exhibit at the US Botanic Gardens in DC. I love the Botanic Gardens a lot on regular days; it is even better at Christmas. They have a Christmas display of trains that go around an exhibit made of plant materials. This year the exhibit was National Parks and historic sites. Loved it.

The wait is long. We waited probably almost an hour? I'm not sure. It was certainly not bad, though, with big kids.  Neither C12 nor Q10 wanted to go, but I really did. I've been trying to get motivated to go all December, and I FINALLY did it. And we took the Fiat, so parking was EASY. Thanks, TCR.
