science center

today poppa and i took the girls to the detroit science center. i thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to teach pooka all kinds of things. yeah, right. she was so wound up, she barely stood still for 15 seconds. running from one display to another: what does this button do? what does this lever do? what does this rope do?

by the time i caught up with her and started to explain the experiment, she was off and running to the next one.

her favorite thing was the 'jam room'. they had a drum pad kit and a guitar in a room and they were supposed to be hooked up to synthesizers that could change their sounds, but that part was broken. she wanted to sit in there for an hour and just beat on the drums.
