written 3/25/12 – We bought some wild flower seeds this weekend to go in the front of the house. These are perennial, so they should come back every year. We got two packs, of two different wild flower mixes. Once we mix them together, there should be a lot of color in the front yard.
Beth helped to set up the Lego League contest at her school this year. It is where groups of younger kids come to her school with remote control robots. They have the robots do things like push Lego’s from one area to another or pick up Lego’s and move them to another area. The Lego’s that they move aren’t single Lego’s, but they are built into specific things, like chickens. The principle asked her if she wanted to come to the school over the summer to work with the Lego league. She and Maggie are also going on a mission trip this summer and have their Zoo Teen interview this weekend to volunteer at the Zoo. She might be able to be in all of it, we don’t know how the hours will work out yet.
We went to the Zoo over the summer. We haven’t gone in ta few years. It was fun to go back again. The reason that we went is because the Zoo had a butterfly exhibit. We wanted to see what that was like, all of those graceful, fragile creatures flying around us. When we got there the exhibit was a room that was warm with a lot of flowers and plants in it. They also had some bowls with sponges in them. In the bowls was a red liquid. I asked the Zoo person that was in the room what the liquid was. She said that it was red Gatorade. It attracts the butterflies. We went late in the summer, so there weren’t a huge number of butterflies, but there were a lot. Some did fly onto us. When we left there we went and saw the fish and the monkey exhibits. It takes us a long time to go through each area, so we don’t see many exhibits.
