Great giveaway....

Here's a great giveaway on my bff's homeschooling blog :) Check her out! She homeschools in MS. So even though it's not in VA, she's got a ton of information that I've used for my own girls when they've had issues in different subjects. She did a wonderful Amazing Race birthday party for her 10yo son, Ben that was "to die for"! Check her out, you'll find her just as amazing as I do!

Girls Scouts and The Science Fair Project

Girl Scouts/Colonial Williamsburg

We had a blast in Colonial Willamsburg on Saturday, March 12th with the Girl Scouts. It was Girl Scout Day there and the girls got to meet some interesting women from Colonial Times and learn about how they became tavern owners, tour buildings and see how people lived back then.

Here are some pictures of us on the shuttle bus that took us from the Guest Services into Colonial Williamsburg.

The girls got to see the Magazine and Guard House.

They got to experience what Colonial Punishment was like - minus the rotten fruit of course :).

Girl Scouts/Cookies

During one of our booth sales at Chick-fil-a, we had an unexpected visitor, the cow :). Samantha couldn't pass up the opportunity for a hug. He even bought a box of Thin Mints from the girls.

The Science Fair Project

Hannah's Science Fair Project was due today. She chose to make a Lemon Battery. Now for those who are unaware, you can actually power a calculator, small digital clock or a led light with a lemon battery. It was very educational and we had a great time helping her make it. Here you can see the led (red light) lighting up with the help of 4 lemon batteries.

2 lemons produced a very faint light, so you definately need 4 lemons in order to get enough power to really make a "battery".

Her Science Fair at school is Thursday night, St. Patrick's Day, so I'll let you know how she does.

Samantha's class did a Science Project as a class, they planted flowers, so we'll get to see those and take pictures on Thursday.
