Before we headed to church this morning, the boys and their dad got in some Zelda-playtime. At church the boys attended a kids' worship service and Sunday school while we attended adult Sunday school and then worship. We had a guest speaker today for both services who talked about the current state of affairs in the Middle East and how they relate to Biblical prophesy. It was really interesting! And the guy is a radio host from Dallas, Kerby Anderson, so that was kind of fun, too. After church, the boys had their usual snack and play time with the other kids from church.

Once we got home from there, it was time to shower up, eat dinner, and work on the science fair some more. There was a little more Zelda-time in there some where. After dinner we worked on another project for scientists week - an egg drop launcher. He started it yesterday, but got really motivated to finish it tonight. After he got one model ready, the guys all took it outside to test it. Unfortunately, the egg did not survive a 5-foot drop, so we are pretty sure that it wouldn't survive the 70-ft. drop that is the challenge. He has some more ideas, so we will try to implement them tomorrow.

Evan got to stay up a little late tonight to finish the second trial of his science fair project. Now we have one more to finish before the project is due Wednesday. But we also have to finish the egg drop launcher by Tuesday morning. So, it looks like tomorrow will be another busy day. Maybe it won't wear him out quite so badly, though.
