  • Hi Spanky, did the ladies get the card yet? Mom is hoping that Grammy was released today to go back to the home, so she doesn't have to spend the weekend there at the hospital. Today it was cold in the morning, as usual, but this afternoon it got to 40, so it felt pretty good. We had a nice walk this morning before she left for work. At the museum mom was assigned for 3 of the 5 spots on the third floor, National Geographic 50 best wildlife Photos. The other assignment was in dinosaur hall. And one period was her break time. Anyway, the groups were 60 to 75 in each one, and they were broken down into smaller groups of 4 or 5. The groups each had a clipboard with the questions they were to answer. Mom and the other docent in the hall were there to guide the kids, point them in the right direction, but not to help with the answers in any way. It was a bit more chaotic to mom than yesterday in the classroom, but the halls are much larger than classrooms. The kids all seemed involved, so that was good. Yesterday we said the kids were mostly gifted and academically talented, but from some of the chaperones mom talked to today, the science bowl was also used as a reward for excelling in science class and good behavior. At any rate, it was clearly devoted to the best kids in each school. This was the third year mom has worked the Science Bowl. On the way home mom stopped for some grapes and milk. Of course, there were only 2 registers open at the grocery store, and no express line, so it took longer than she thought to get home. At least she wore sensible (read old) shoes today, [] [] . We pretty much just hung out after mom got home and changed. Our weather changed this afternoon, too, it started raining. [] They said snow overnight, so we'll see what happens. Mom laughs at us when we beg, she says she's immune to that. We hope you had a good day today and a lovely evening, too. Hugs and kisses, [] [] [] FalcoHi Spanky, did the ladies get the card yet?
