Okay; the project has been completed, and carried carefully to school--although at one point this morning, I must admit to threatening that if the little darling didn't immediately improve his [very] shitty attitude, I myself would personally stop the vehicle, remove the project board from the backseat, tear it up, and happily scatter it to the four winds. I had the right to do this of course, because guess who wound up putting at least 85% of that board together?

Many thanks, gang, for the support--and a few good laughs--along the way. Without further ado, I present to you The Project Board:

Left side of board THE BOARD! Right side of project board

Sometimes, the Scientific Method cracks me up: the fact that you needed a control can of Coke just to prove that the temperature wouldn't fall of its own accord is just hilarious to me, even though I understand why it is so.

Since there are no photos of a wrecked board I guess it made it to school in one piece. Very scientific looking I must say.

Now that he knows how to rapidly cool your drinks I think he should help mom off her feet and bring her a rapidly cooled one :)

or later, since it is like you know the morning there :)

You child is adorable and cute. I don't know you or your child but I think that's really my loss. He has done a great project. I liked it and I wouldn't have think that water with ice and water with ice and salt would do a better cooling-job as a refrigerator, or a freezer. I'm surprised. And thanks a lot for sharing those informations. I like to know those stuff.

i'm glad someone learned something--because i'm not at all sure he did! and the way i'm feeling towards the Kid right now, i'd be more than happy to box him up and ship him to you!

*smile* give him enough Coke and some food into the box. So he can survive on his way to me.
I think at least he learned to close the freezer. Some adults don't do that.
Hm, if you want give him a hug from me.

just look at that graph, created wholly by mommy's little fingers at 0540 this-freakin'-morning. and i made, oh, half a dozen mistakes. in ink. that i then had to cover with wee scraps of glued-on white paper. gee--i hope it doesn't lower my grade!

NO! i am getting reassurance from knowing that they are close at hand. seriously, it's a good thing kid's at school all day; perhaps by pick-up time, i'll have calmed down a bit. i'm exhausted, frustrated, disappointed, and stressed to the max at the moment. not exactly conducive to good parenting--or anything else, for that matter.

Well, napping always works for me and I can sleep almost always and everywhere (provided I don't have a stomach-bug like these days...), so I thought it might help you.

And please take whatever time you need, of course I understand (especially because I went kind of overboard and used a zillion words in that e-mail; I'm not the concise type!)

That looks great. The layout's excellent and it's very readable (an important plus in a science project, since it has to be viewed from a slight distance).

If it's any consolation, he may eventually learn from the Science Project Weekend Freak-Out Experience not to put things off to the last minute. My son, whose disorganization was simply legendary among his teachers, did learn that.

i asked him this morning if he'd learned anything from this experience. his response? 'yes, ma'am. because of my crappy attitude, and because you wound up putting the board together, i'm on my own for the social studies fair.'

right answer. perceptive kid.

He definitely got the point there. Although I'll actually believe it when social studies fair is over and Mom hasn't killed him (or herself)yet. :)

much appreciated! the kid did actually do the experiment on his own, and took all the photos used on the board [except the one of himself, of course]--but i get full credit for the layout and the graph! :)

I hope you're having that well deserved rest right about now.

The board looks great!

I'm also glad to know there were no trips to the ER. My junior year of HS on the night before my last ever science project was due I some how managed to fall crack my bad arm on the edge of the counter and then had to spend 4 hours in the ER getting x-rays because it swelled up like a balloon and I lost feeling in it... worse is that probably an hour of that time was taken explaining to the nurse how my right arm could be swollen enough to have serious concerns and still be smaller than my right. Apparently the concept of me having CP and always having an odd limb to begin with was beyond her because she kept saying, "Are you sure it wasn't your left arm? It looks bigger than your right to me." In the end no one could really explain the swelling (nothing was broken) but it got me an official Drs note and a few more hours to work on the project (which I don't even remember now - it possibly was about Carbon - well, if Carbon is the sixth element).

Should I start the prayers for the SS Fair project now to get a head start on things? Perhaps I'll start with one hoping the attitude improves before the child is home from school...

oh, yikes! i can relate. glad it at least earned you some extra time [could've used a bit of that myself this morning].

yes--any and all prayers welcome--most especially the 'attitude' prayer!

Reminds me of the history project my daughter was suppose to do in sixth grade. Luckily her dad got to handle the last one she did. There are some benefits to competing parents after all. Who knew?

i knew. i mean, i know, because koda reminds me at regular intervals how much better his life would be if he had a dad--and i agree. but it is what it is, poor kid is stuck with me.

Wow, that looks awesome. He certainly won't get points deducted for not having enough on his board. *nods*

Hey, he didn't read off the board, did he? They'll take points for that, too. Don't ask me how I remember...

Um, yes, Thanksgiving Break is an entire week. Try not to be dazed at the horror of the the thing. *quoting an amazing Harry Potter story that I printed out to carry around with me*

I remember being distinctly irritated that we only got a week off for Thanksgiving, when we got two for Christmas break. *shrugs*

when i was in school, a thousand years ago, 'thanksgiving break' consisted of thursday and friday; that was all. also, we were actually allowed to call christmas break christmas break. and sing christmas carols, and everything. and no one got offended. it was kewl!
