Who Ever Wants To Understand Much
Must Play Much
Here in the United States we celebrate
1st Monday in September as
a holiday in honor of the working people.
It's a day off from the regular work week -
a day to relax and play.
We spent our holiday
at the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix
heart stealing grandbabies
Children have that unbridled impulse to
every aspect of the world around them
and this is a perfect place to fill those needs.
The science exhibits were outstanding.
We learned how control and manipulate light
through a Stroboscope
An entire floor is dedicated to understanding and interacting
with exhibits on
the Human Body
Noah even experienced what it was like to lay on a bed of nails.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said
It is a Happy Talent to Know How To Play
Isaak realized he had the strength
to pull his own body weight.
And with floor after floor of
well designed, exciting exhibits,
we learned that the kids were most drawn
to building and creating
with simple blocks.
With mommy's help
Kayla would have been content at this table for hours.
Even Dano showed his creative side.
"The World is full of magical things, patiently waiting for
our senses to grow sharper" (W. B. Yeats)
"Wonder is the beginning of Wisdom"
These beautiful children seem well on their way.
