The other day I tried to get the girls to sit down and watch some figure skating with me. Nope... They just weren't that interested. How can my daughters not be excited about Olympic figure skating?! I told them that they only get this once every four years, and that it would be fun! "After all," I added, "we really hope to take you to Sochi in four years."
"Really?!" exclaimed Katya. "And can we get tickets to CURLING?!!!!"
"Yeah, CURLING! It's SO COOL to see how physics and friction work!"
I take no credit for her scientific leanings. Check out her recent blog post to see how her curious mind works... Lord knows how I struggled through the basic classes in high school. Curling cool? Not so sure. But my scientific nine-year-old? Definitely!
