On both Saturday and Sunday night we spent an hour at Freedom Park with our 4H promotion materials in tow. Maddie needed 2 hours of 4H Promotion to qualify for the level 2 achievement award for the year, a goal she had set for herself. So we sat on the path to the concert stage and had conversations with interesting people! One lady was quite funny. I was working on my knitting both nights, The second night she said "Wow! Are you still working on the same sock?". She must've thought I was some sort of speed knitter.
Both nights were humid but there was a beautiful breeze off the river.
Last night was Chemistry experiment night. Our first major one of the year. Maddie tested the luster, magnetism, conductivity and malleability of several different objects. I think the malleability test or the "go smash it with a hammer in the driveway" test was her favorite. Brian helped her build the circuit to test conductivity.
Tonight we are studying the periodic table some more and working on the 4H record book to hand in soon!
