We went to science world a few weeks ago. The trip was organized by the home school group, so the rate was great. However, because it was a school outing, I was flying solo with 4 kids in a busy place. All and all, it went way better than I anticipated. We had a great time. The kids wished they could have stayed longer. We participated in a magnets workshop that the kids found a bit too structured with not enough time for experimentation. They did return home, though, with a need to show and tell everyone they say about magnets.
Unfortunately, our adventures are still structured around BW's nap. So, we had to head out at 1:30. We had to pick up a buying club order on our way home. The pick-up took way longer than expected and we ended up in rush hour traffic. Thankfully, my cousins were home and we dropped by for dinner and a play visit. Thanks guys. You saved me. The kids were very done with being in the car at that point. We stayed until bedtime and then I finished up the last driving stretch. I survived. It was a long day, but well worth it.
