Go With the Flow

We are in the second week of Christmas vacation and it has been great sleeping in and not having to follow much of a schedule. But most afternoons, the girls start getting antsy and picking on each other, so I have been trying to keep them busy.  The other day we went to the Enviromental Center and learned all about water.

Rachel and I had been there before when I was pregnant with Rebecca.  We were the only people there, which was a good thing because Rebecca gets a little loud sometimes.

There are lots of hands-on exhibits for the kids to play with and learn all about water. Rebecca's favorite was the water table with the boats. She was soaking wet by the time we left.

Rachel pedaling a bike to move a chain that turned a water wheel.  I think Rachel actually learned a few things and she has studied about water at school, so it was good reinforcement for her.

They also had an exhibit about space travel and astronauts. It was interesting and the girls liked it. Rachel thought the section about the bathroom in space was pretty funny.

Rebecca checking out the potty. I have been trying to potty train her over the break, so her interest in the potty is higher than usual right now.

Lots of exhibits about different water areas in Georgia. The center is pretty and has a nice walking trail. I may bring the girls back in the spring and take a look outside.
