It’s been a hot Summer so far, no doubt. One of these ways we beat the heat this month was taking a trip up to Portland to visit the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. Fun, learning, and air conditioning? Yes, please.

My entire family really enjoys making slime. This odd but deeply satisfying concoction provides for hours of stress-free fun for those of all ages. When I heard about Adam Vandergrift’s book Slime Sorcery offering nearly 100 hundred slime recipes, I knew it needed to be added to our collection.
If you asked my older children their favorite subject school I am more than certain they’d chime back with a reply that it is Science. I’m not surprised by this because I know children (and adults! ) are all about discovering new things, learning how things work, and determining how that information could be applied where applicable. This type of discovering is much like learning to be a Christian and growing to be more like Jesus! So when I heard about Louie Giglio’s latest book ” Indescribable 100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science”, that pair these two very impact subjects together, I knew it would be the perfect book for my family.

We are sporting the Celestron ISO Certified, 2017 North American Total Solar Eclipse EclipSmart 2x Power Viewers Solar Observing Kit that I purchased from Amazon in June.I wanted to make sure I got the glasses before they sold out. I did research to make sure the glasses were legit too. I am so glad I did because there was a big recall on a bunch of different glasses that would not protect your eyes properly. I’m hoping everyone caught on to the recall! You have to be so careful when viewing an eclipse!
Nancy B’s Science Club: Mighty Microbes Lab and Germ Journal way make one squirm a little bit. This kit gives ones an up close look at the things we commonly don’t see called microbes. Some are good and some are bad but which are which is the question often many will be asking. This kit will answer the questions that one would have and conduct similar experiments to find out specific information. Kids will get the opportunity to grow and feed microbes. How cool is that?
