Last week, the girls took a chemistry class for primary-age homeschoolersÂ at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.Â We came early, and spent much of our time in the Science Playground (a free-exploration area for those 5 and under.)Â We haven’t had such a fun outing since our trip to Hood River.Â The girls keep talking about what a great day it was.
I couldn’t go into the chemistry class with them, since Tum Tum wouldn’t keep his safety goggles on (yup, even 5 month-olds have to wear safety goggles in the chemistry workshop!), so we chatted with the other moms outside.Â
After theÂ workshopÂ – more exploration, this time downstairs in theÂ physics areaÂ with the other homeschool kids.Â We were there from 10:30-3pm!Â We would have stayed longer, but Little Hen had to get to Girl Scouts.
I think an OMSI membership is something we have to look into.Â It would make a great place for us to run around on rainy winter days, and provide a great opportunity for immense amounts of learning.
