I Survived Science Camp!!!

This past week our lab group along with another lab group ran a science camp. We had two groups of kids everyday, the first was fifth and sixth graders, and the second was seventh through ninth graders. We ran five days worth of experiments all about the molecules of life, so DNA, protein, bacteria, and other molecules. It was exhausting and we were all borderline zombies by the end to the week. From the parent feedback we got most of the kids enjoyed themselves. It was a great experience but hopefully never again. I do want kids someday but that day is very, very far away. 

I am definitely ready to be back in my normal lab next week!

A Yarn Addiction

Lately I have been knitting up a storm. I finished my first pair of mittens and I am in love with them. They turned out great. 

I used a pattern I found here. I got the yarn from Rainbow Gifts and Yarn, it is Elegant Yarns Kaleidoscope. It is 100% wool and was really nice to work with. I LOVE Rainbow Gifts and Yarns it is a wonderful yarn store and one of my favorite things about it is that they have alpacas there. I love visiting the alpacas and right now there are babies.

So while I was home I went and did some yarn shopping and got quite a bit of yarn for projects.
