Our Hair Raising Experience

Yesterday we went to BYU and the Eyring Science Center (thought of you Nacco!!)  For a physics demonstartion with the homeschooling group.  Louise loved it and the guy and girl who did it really did well with the kids.  They had the air blowing vaccum thing that made things "float" in the air.  They defied gravity with static electricity. ANd made a light turn on with magnetic fields.  They also had a magnetic something or other that threw metal rings into the air at a push of a button...  Plus they did this fun ball of static.  Here's louise and Her Hair Raising Experience!
This is the before pic which I thought I put before. But she's a cutie.  It was especially fun b/c they let all the kids try all of the experiments hands on.

I remember touching those thing were always so awesome. Even in Jr. High we all had to try it out at the Hansel Observatory. Your Homeschooling group, seems awesome! Joseph is already telling people, we are going to Home school part of the day, and In school part of the day. So I guess that's what we are going do ha ha.

YES! My old home away from home! Did they also show you the displays upstairs? The Hydrologic Cycle display is my creation! Teagun also helped and her friend was the one that painted the backdrop. Ahh...so many good memories from this place :) Maybe Louise will be a famous Scientist of Professor there someday?...never say never!

Vileena! I found you through Mel's blog- its so fun to see your sweet family! I know it's been awhile since I haven't even seen your hubby. Your kids are adorable- I was surprised they didn't have your dark hair! but what am I saying- half my kids could pass for albinos. Go figure. I hope you are doing good-and maybe if its okay I'll check in once in awhile!
