I hate science projects

So, it's science project time. And excuse the digression but who knew there was such a fad among girls now to do all of their science experiments on the effectiveness of various lotions, creams, etc.? It has surely become the photosynthesis experiment of its time....

Anyhoo, here it is, the night before it's due, and I am just now proof reading Mady's content for her project. And yes, I am saying the same thing to myself that I did back when it was actually my science project that I was working on. WHY DID I WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE?

Mind you, the actual experiment was done last week. The packet was even done last week. However, the putting it together didn't make it past the fact that I have SIX KIDS all talking to me at the same time with comments like, "Mommy, I poopy." and "do I have to do my chores today?" to "Why can't I have a cell phone?" and back to "Mommy, D's poopy."

The fact that I actually completed all of my secondary education and yet am doing it all over again times each of the six children has me feeling a little cross-eyed right now.

If you home school, you can choose not to do science fair projects. . .

And Tyler just informed me he has to build an atom. This is atom #4, for the record.

No, I did not know that lotion is the new photosynthesis. But I am interested in the results, since I am in the market for new moisturizer.

Well, I will troll the booths with the lotions and see which ones make the cut...

What I long for is the day when science fair projects started in Jr. High and not 1st grade. And does anyone else feel they'd be easier if the board was quite a bit smaller? Why does it have to be that giant, "I need a ride to school" size. Little people, little boards. Who's with me?

I am COMPLETELY with you on this, Angela. Especially when you factor in car pooling every kid in your neighborhood who has a science project to turn in!
