What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

The children got up close and personal with leeches, a tarantula, a snapping turtle, a scorpion,

snakes, cockroaches, and all manner of beastly creatures.

The highpoint by far, though, was after about twenty minutes the man explaining and introducing creatures reached into his back pockets and pulled out two large RaTs!!! They had been in there, squirming around for the entire presentation, along with a pocketful of Asian cockroaches. Um. That nearly made me lose my lunch. It was at this point that the swarm of children sitting around in a circle bopped up and started buzzing in closer and closer, excitement just oozing.

There was lots of other stuff too. Fun stuff. Good stuff. Educational stuff. And we experienced it all hastily, happily, and in disguise. Not to mention: we left with flashing red lights gifted from the center--which, as anyone who has ever experienced children before knows--free gifts and flashing lights make the evening all the more magical.
