Friday's Activities Include: family science night, found paperwork, charity checks

A. has been excited about Family Science Night at ABRHS since the flyer came home in her backpack. So we went. We extracted DNA from a strawberry. We looked at a robotic arm. She answered questions about a bunch of ecosystem stuff. We learned a little bit about the electric school bus Acton will be getting from Lion Bus. All very exciting.

R. and I had dinner beforehand at Ginger Court.

Before that, I decided to write a few more charity checks, rather than leave it to the absolute last possible moment which is what I did last year. And when I got the stack of paperwork for charity solicitations that I had been collecting, I discovered that the letter from my insurance agent had somehow crawled into the middle of that pile, which is why I couldn't find it the previous day. Oh well! Fortunately, it gave his current phone number AND his office hours, so I called him and we chatted. I got to tell him the story of the ceiling damage from last August that was recently completely repaired without me ever seeing a bill, and thus without generating any claims on the insurance.
