I've crossed a new hurtle of parenthood... my first science fair.
My favorite part of his presentation were the drawings he made of the birds we saw over the week. He worked really hard on these! He even included drawings of their eggs (we read the descriptions of them in our field guide).
At the end of the day he was a little bummed he didn't walk away with a trophy... but hey, there were a lot of first graders participating! His dad took him out for a little something special regardless.
What did I learn? Science Fairs are crazy places!!! It was so noisy in that cafeteria I couldn't hear myself think.
All in all... it was a cool experiment. I'm glad he wanted to do it. Now we're wondering what kind of seed would win during the spring... or summer... or fall... cause it would all depend on what birds were frequenting the feeders and that changes throughout the year. More experiments for the future!
