Kinetic Energy,...


For once it is not Isaac in motion,...but a kinetic sculpture at a local children's museum.



Part of Isaac's summer programs, his Wednesday morning class met at the museum for a play-group session and he had fun exploring and playing with the hands-on exhibits and running racing with his own super-sonic style in evidence by the flash of his little red shirt whizzing by....

When the parents broke away for a short seminar,...Isaac had at least three teenage volunteers keeping track on him in the Bubble Room,...and they all had athletic shoes on,...his speed is well known!

However this kinetic sculpture in the lobby held Isaac's riveted attention for at least twenty minutes and THAT is a long time for any child,....much less a hyper-active three year old. 




A broadening experience, Isaac was clearly trying to figure out the sculpture's mechanisms as the multi-colored golf balls traveled a diverse and musical track in an endless loop.


From all angles he quietly studied the device and you could see the wheels in his mind churning.




When it was time to go,...Isaac signed: "Thank you!"


Our first visit to the children's museum,...but not our last,.....

Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!
