I mentioned yesterday how Jeremy was setting up Nichole's science fair project, right?
Well, back in November, the 5th graders were assigned to put together a science fair project for school. Nichole and her friend decided to be partners. Nichole had this idea after watching Jr. participate in his first pinewood derby to see what kinds of wood sand better and does it make a difference if the wood is wet or not. Her partner was fine with that.
So these girls worked hard on their project, researching different kinds of wood, different kinds of sandpaper (including some that are waterproof- I didn't know there was waterproof sandpaper before they did this project). And they definitely worked hard on sanding those pieces of wood.
Now, back to my daughter and her friend. We found out later that the school could send more projects to the district science fair and Nichole and her friend's project was picked to go on. How fun.
This morning, the girls didn't have to go to school. Instead, Nichole, her friend, her friend's mom, and I headed to BYU. Well, that's where I went to college so I guess they did go to school today.
I made sure while we were there to take pictures of Nichole juggling since the science fair was in a building Jeremy and I had done juggling shows when we were in college. Like mother (and father), like daughter.
Nichole and I did not go to the award's ceremony. Nichole had already been asked to join several 5th graders at the school district board meeting this evening, playing their recorders for everyone there. So that's where we went. Those seven kids did a good job. It was neat to see them play what they had been practicing. Apparently the kids could earn different "belts" (kind of like for karate) based on songs they memorized. So Nichole is a black belt in the recorder.
