The fun actually started Sunday evening, with a potluck at our old church building. The weather was beautiful, so we were able to be outside the whole time! The kids ran around and played, and the adults visited. So fun!
Then on Tuesday we started off with chemistry lab, in which we observed emission spectra for various salts with spectroscopes. (Do you see the pink flame of the strontium chloride we're burning here?) We also did a brief activity about isotopes using peanut and regular M&Ms. It was so fun to have Eric actually here, able to participate (and eat), not just watching through a screen!
The next day, Oct. 2, was the day the C's headed back to Hawaii. After the morning history class (Potter's School), we called over to the McC house to see if anything spontaneous was happening for the last hour the C's had free. So I dropped off Nathan, Luke, and Caleb for a last-minute game of football before Christine took the C's to the airport. One last bit of fun squeezed in!
