Science


So there was a fight at the Science Center...
not your most likely place to encounter one, but hey, put a bunch of science fiends together and sometimes it occurs.

My son had a great time, the whole week, thanking me for putting him in a camp, and enjoying his dusting of fingerprints, footprints and blood trajectory.
Alas, as they were putting their final project together, (which all of my family was so excited to see seeing as they never get to see anything of the kids since we live so far), a small out break occurred, my son was hit in the face and he was upset, wanting to come home. He and another child disagreed about something, my son chased him and then the kid hit him. Whatever, not really that big of a deal, except, that my son wanted to come home!

Well, I went there, and after a lot of conversation, a lot of cajoling, a lot of reasoning, he finally accepted that he was staying to finish his project through.
In the end, he was so happy he stayed and we (all 8 of us), piled into the forensic lab and solved cases. The kids were split into small groups and they each had a mystery for us to solve. My son's group had us match fingerprints and footprints to find the suspect. It was cool, and most importantly, my son felt proud that he saw the project through.

I like these camps, and am looking forward to next week's zoo camp with my daughter!

That sounds like an eventful day. I hope your son wasn't hurt. It also sounds like a family interactive camp. I'm glad things ended up well in the end.

Hi BG, I haven't "seen" you in awhile so I took some time to read back through your past post. I am so sorry that people you knew were on that plane. And I know it hit you all hard. Bless them and their families. Hope your Mom is doing well and you are having fun in the states. Summer camp sounds fabulous...a little budding CSI person. How cool is that? And speaking of cool, congratulations on your precious babies for making all "A's". You must be so proud. :) See you soon. ~ Lynn

I agree with PJ, after a while he won´t even remember the fight. You did the right thing talking him into staying.
Glad you are enjoying your stay!
