My Nemisis: The Science Fair

Every year my older son has to participate in The Science Fair.

And it manages to wreak havoc on our lives.
It raids our villages, steals our livestock and burns our crops.


We end up rushing to complete the science project the weekend before it's due.
It usually involves petrie dishes and liquids that smell...

Until this year.

This year I got smart.

We chose a project that wasn't messy...didn't cost much and was interesting.

We tested different scanning apps on the iPhone using common household items.

Did you know that you can download apps to your iPhone that turn it into a barcode scanner?

You can go out shopping,
see something you want, scan it's barcode
and see that the item you want costs less somewhere else...
it shows you.

Gotta love technology.

Take that, Science Fair.
You didn't get me this year.

But my younger son is almost reaching that mandatory science fair age...

and we'll meet again.
