Tonight, we spent some time at the Garland Special Events Center for a Regional Science Fair display. We were there because Maria, and her friends Britney and Peyton, won the Grand Prize at Prestonwood’s Science Fair, advancing them to this regional event.
As you can see from the picture, their project was titled “What Solvent Removes Permanent Marker Ink The Best?”
Besides being something that is scientific, it’s also something that’s very practical too. I won’t go into all their research, but they did work some looong hours over the past few months on this project.
I am very proud of all of them, but especially proud of, and thankful for, Maria the Scientist.
(During this year, my goal is to find something new to be thankful for every single day, and to add that thanksgiving as a blog entry, under the title “My Daily Gratitude.” I started this kick back around Thanksgiving, and it’s already resulted in a favorite new song of mine. The goal of this ongoing spiritual exercise is to see if doing such a thing might inspire even more gratitude within me, and to foster general awareness of life on a deeper level.)
