You never know what you are going to get. The box had a cool letter from Bill.

The kit also had some really fun experiments and even a signed page of one of his scripts from his tv show! Some of the boxes contained a bow-tie, sadly ours did not. We plan to have lots of fun with science when we tackle our kit soon.

We have been having such a busy time for 4-H this month. In our club we built catapults, learned about balance and so much more. I am making new friends and TRYING to stay calm during the meetings.

Mommy Breighton Day

This may be a first! Emmerson had gifted class today but I did not! I got Mommy for 3 hours. We enjoyed a pancake breakfast at iHop, complete with hot cocoa. We went for a walk at the park and then wandered around the toy store and then came home and play with my toys for a while.

After we picked up Emmerson we both read some books on out iPads and then played some new games. It was a quiet low key day!
