Well, Sammy is a bowler. He has enjoyed the sport for several years.
OH OH, I have trailed away from the original post here. Stay with me, Science Fair is an option. For us, it was not optional. As the main instructor for my son, I insist that he participate. With a little prompting, he choose bowling to use as the object of research for his project. It started out simple enough. Hypothesis, the forward position of the weight block with in the bowling ball will result in higher number of pins down upon impact.
Well if, you have ever started a SF project, you may remember the research that really goes into it. The study of motion, velocity, energy....it has been invigorating to research close by him and learn the principles of science involved in bowling. The best part of all this is the energy and excitement he is finding in the learning process.
All this to remind you of the never failing power of prayer. You see, this year of schooling has been a struggle for me in reaching him, and inspiring him to get excited about learning. My daily prayer is to open doors; to find the right connection; to reach and teach. Even with the resistance, this has been a most helpful tool in reaching. I am thankful to the Lord for answering my heartfelt prayer, and opening my eyes to seeing the answer!
