This is the first time the boys and I have been on our own. Chris is in St. Pete, FL getting ready for Home Shopping on Sunday. Today, we set out early for Explore!, the kid's science museum again in the Old Town area.

Keegan and Collin started their learning adventure out in the woodworking room with Mr. Daniel as his coach. Keegan created Aslan from Narnia and a cross, while Collin was busy sawing and gluing a wooden house together(see pics). Then, the boys moved over to the Lego Robotics lab where you program this rover to pick up magnetic sample rocks and launch the scientist safely back to earth before the meteor hits Mars(see pics). So much fun and educational, they did the lab two times! We ended our time there with a NASA Ambassador speaking on "Journey to Jupiter."

Tonight the boys played games and on the playground with their three friends from Alaska while I ran to Walmart. There's a family who lives here at the RV park full time with two kids with little resources, so we decided to adopt them for Easter. When I arrived home, Keegan and Collin were so wonderful about helping put the large tub Easter basket together with clothes for the kids, games, balls, chocolate bunnies, cd players with Christian musiic, "Purpose Driven Life" book for Dad, and a bouquet of flowers for the Mom(see pic).

We also promised Ms. Ruth we would fill plastic eggs with candy for the Navajo Reservation kids they minister to on Sunday mornings. So, Keegan and Collin got busy and filled them all, with a few pieces for themselves as an incentive. What a great opportunity to teach our kids to be cheerful givers and make a difference in other's lives as they share the love and message of Jesus Christ!

It's really late and we're supposed to leave for Easter Sunrise Service at 5:30am.
