About an hour or two later, we left the college and headed for a 'Hands-on Museum'. It was AMAZING!!! We had so much fun there. There were so many exhibits - a harp with lasers for strings, a thing that tested up to what frequency you could hear, etc., etc., etc. :-) The frequency-tester-thingie said that humans could hear up to 20,000...um....Hertz? I don't remember. Dad could hear up to approximately 11,000, Mom could hear up to somewhere around 13,000, Nathan and I could both hear up to about 14,500, and Nicholas and Noah could hear up to around 17,000. Cool, huh? Not as cool as something else: it was a big room with a bunch of pretty big, red 'bricks' we could build with. They were foamlike but a bit sturdier and stronger. First we built a tower around Nathan, and then he burst out of it. Next Nathan and I started to build a tower around ourselves, but about halfway through we were trapped inside. :-) Mom and Nicholas helped us finish - when it was completely done it was about 7 or 8 feet tall!! It even had a ceiling, along with a small window on each of the four sides. Then Dad helped us make a door on one side for us to squeeze through, so we didn't have to knock down the whole thing. It was really nice, but about a half an hour later when we came back, someone had completely demolished it.
One more thing (my mom told me I need to make my blogs shorter, so I'm really trying): when we were at Greenfield Village a few days ago, we watched a potter forming clay on a wheel. Now, I don't know if any of you have ever seen this before, but it is very fascinating. You could probably look up a video of it on YouTube. Anyway, you all have probably read in the Bible the passage about God being the potter, and us being the clay. I now realize what an impact that must have had on the people listening to Jesus speaking. When I watched the potter form the clay, I watched how God wants to shape my life and me. And I think He's already got me a little loosened up.
Jeremiah 18:6 ""O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter does?" declares the LORD. "Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel." (If you have the time - and this isn't too long - please click on the link above. God bless.)
