Niall, Cory, and I headed over to the PSCS Fall Potluck this evening after work. We got there about 20 minutes early, the way it worked out with picking them up from Extended Day, getting some dinner, and then driving across I-90 to Seattle.
When we walked in, Steve was there and few other people, and I enjoyed chatting with them a bit. But the boys were immediately drawn to a table near the entrance with cool science stuff - moss, petri dishes growing things, pinecones - and various microscopes. Soon Tanya (staff member/science teacher) came over and began to gently explain to them how to use the microscopes, opening experiments so they could see what was inside, and generally delighting them with science.
The crowning touch was a big fat grub that they got to hold and look at under the microscope. So cool!
It was so heartwarming to see Tanya and the boys exploring science together. Let me just say again how amazing and wonderful the PSCS staff members are! Love them.
Later I caught a cute shot of Tynor and Juliana. Awwww... :D
