We went to Beth’s parade this morning. The sky was gray. It rained sort of hard for about ten minutes before the parade started. We saw Sponge Bob at the parade and a frog statue outside of the fire station. Her group has go cart sized cars. They start out as gas powered and the school changes them to alternative energy cars. They have a solar powered car an electric car and some others. I think they all run on gas too. The kids drive the cars in the parade. It gives the kids a chance to show others the work that they have been doing. Since the cars are used, they sometimes need repaired. This gives the kids a lot of chances to see how they are put together. Beth’s first year there she did a lot of sanding. She didn’t know anything about cars or about the machines. Last year she did more work with the machines. She din’t come home as dirty last year. I didn’t realize that sanding was such a dirty job. She does have a greater understanding about how cars are put together, but she doesn’t seem to be taken with cars. The teachers at the school says that by the end of the kids junior year the kids have a pretty good understanding of what they would like to go into for a career.
