However, our older kids REALLY wanted to take part in the egg drop competition. Bethany and Elijah had recently done a similar project in our homeschool lessons. Elijah took initiative and called to find out the 'specifications' for the event - seeing as how he is technically 6th grade age.
Excitedly they began putting their plans into action. It took 3 eggs to find a model that kept their egg from cracking as it hit the ground. The only 'rules' they were given was their package had to be 18 in or less and they had to use a raw egg.

|And their off - Charity didn't make it too far, |
but had a fun time
|Big kids had to do their second lap w/the egg in their mouth|
|Trinity made 2 full laps and never broke her egg|
|Egg in mouth was a bit more difficult|
All in all, it was a fun-filled morning. Meeting new friends and taking part in cleaver activities was a nice change to our typical routine.
