One of the many cool things Robert has courtesy of Sarah is a Tinker Kit subscription. He built most of the rocket a while back but today we took it out to actually use it.

The kit came with baking powder and citric acid; mix them, pour into the rocket preloaded with water, and pop it quickly onto the base. Sarah was the fastest assembler of the family. This was our highest shot. that’s the rocket in the top of the picture (with some fuel droplets below it)

Alexandria Turkey Trot
last update: 11/26 @ 11:16

Robert and Sarah ran the 5 Mile (not K) race this morning. Up until they picked up their bibs last night, they were assuming it was a 5K.

Both did great, Robert beat Sarah by just about two minutes.

His time was 1:00:27 and hers was 1:02:24.

The weather was, obviously, perfect for a turkey trot.

I’m guessing they both did so well, had such a good time and the school/neighborhood group so nice that this will not be the only Alexandria Turkey Trot for the Williams/Zapolskys.

Aquarium Sleepover

We had fun at Baltimore’s National Aquarium last night: a sleepover with the fishes. And with the program from Johns Hopkins and the Aquarium staff, we learned some cool things while we were allowed behind the scenes. More photos in the travel section.

Back from West Virginia

It’s a long story see…

As we helped close down the WV campus, the younger kids put on a Haunted House in one of the bunk houses. Robert thought he should join in wearing this PJs (which was his dragon costume from Halloween).

Then he was invited to play the part of Kurt in the Mad Libs presentation of Challenge of the Yukon.

As for why the after dinner entertainment was an old time radio show, I’m less clear. But it was fun, the kids and adults enjoyed it — the kids a bit too much as they supplied many of the Mad Lib moments and Robert was not the only 4th - 6th grade boy…

Cross Country Championship

I guess the cool kids says XCountry.

Robert’s school team came in first for girls and second for Boys. I know there is no way I could run as far as fast as he did.
