Rutgers Day 2009

Saturday was "Rutgers Day" here in the Garden State.
It was too much for me. Too many things going on a one time, not enough energy to do it all, or see it all.
We concentrated on "Ag Day". Missing the Zimmerli all together.:-(
Princess was disappointed to not see the baby animals, but we loved our visit to the
Marine and Coastal Science Department.They had many fun activities for the kids...golf..."candy sand" bottles,
face painting, Princess got a soccer ball on her hand Mad ScienceWe didn't find some friends who were supposed to be there, but we met up with other friends.

We also got a HUGE stack of workbooks from the EPA booth, and some nice posters too.It was way too hot for me this early in the year, but Princess had fun.

EPA workbooks sound interesting.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
