Jordan's Weekend

This weekend really was about Jordan...on Friday night, Jordan's soccer team coach worked it out to where his team would lead the high school varsity's scocer team out on the field on their game!


 
 I heard on the radio about CSI Day for kids at the 6th Floor Museum in Dallas for kids. I haven't ever been to the 6th Floor Museum in 33 years, so I was pretty excited about taking Jordan.



I have to say, this was a cool event. They had the entire 7th floor set up completely, with a crime scene, forensic stations, eyewitness accounts, and video surveillance footage. And everyone that worked the stations was so happy to answer your questions and never once did they act annoyed that we kept asking the same questions over and over.

The whole point was to solve a crime. When you got there, they gave the kids a clipboard and papers with an explanation of the crime and questions to ask in each station.


An ambassador had died and you had to figure out who killed him and how. Each station gave you different clues but you really had to think about it.



We were there for over an hour and we did guess the correct suspect!

We learned about fingerprints and how they are different...

 
We even learned about how they use UV lights to determine differences in handwriting.

 
 Such a cool day! Jordan told me it was a great "son/stepmom afternoon." Score one for the stepmoms out there!

Looks like so much fun! Maybe sometime when you have Jordan and I have Justin, we can do a son/stepmom thing together.

I think that's a great idea!
