science sinking in

On the way to the lake (which is totally awesome), this morning, my kids were pretending that they were flying through space and that meteor showers would hit our space ship at certain times the clock changed, of particular import was 9:59 changing to 10:00.  Then they would scream and move around like they had just been hit.  We just talked about and watched a video on meteors and meteorites and how to identify them 2 days ago.  We have been studying the solar system, and of course the kids watch Star Trek with Dad, but still, I think this time spending on science is paying off!!  I am so glad that we are organized enough and on top of things enough to have time and energy to study science.  definitely good!!!
