A great way to end the day ~ putt-putt golf! I have a deep respect for the work ethic of these young men and our youth leader.

Concert At The Farmer's Market

Beautiful way to start the day ~ Griffin played a couple of songs during the Fall Concert. And, then, we took a little walk through the market.

Lifeless Leaf

I noticed this leaf when I was going in to church earlier. It's worn, torn, and lifeless ~ but, it's beauty shines through in the shape of a heart.

4-H National Youth Science Day

The Goochland 4H Trailblazers, joined youth from all over the country by participating in the 4-H National Youth Science Day ~ Incredible Wearables.

This year’s challenge incorporates wearable technology, teaching kids to not only use technology but create it. During the innovative, hands-on project, these future engineers worked together to design, build and refine a wearable health-tracking device that is easy-to-use and aesthetically appealing.

Science Experiment

Even the simplest experiment can be fascinating. Griffin did this one over and over. He was given a hypothesis that fire needs oxygen in order to burn. He had to determine the materials he would need for the experiment, figure out a basic plan and carry it out.

Steps he followed for this assignment: observation, list of questions, form hypothesis, conduct experiment, analyze data and draw a conclusion.

The Simple Life

The simple life ~ an afternoon at home getting chores done and buggy riding.

Art History Class

Griffin's Art History Class was a lesson in ancient writings on rocks. If you notice, his drawing of the phoenix is raised. He's really enjoying this class.
