|The occipital lobe controls vision. We|
blindfolded the kids to have them complete
a task without being able to see.
|Big Sis led them up to the maze.|
|Without their sight, they had to hold|
and follow the rope to complete this part
of the course.
|It was fun to watch them.|
|This task used the frontal lobe for planning|
and problem-solving to make it across the
uneven path of squares while hopping on
|We taped some boxes together for|
a tunnel. The kids crawled through
on their knees.
|Then they slid through on their backs.|
|When Boogs went through, the|
other kids shook the box and
|E went through last.|
|A mini-obstacle course through|
two chairs and a table challenged
the control and coordination of
their muscles. This coordination is
controlled by the cerebellum.
|Yes, I know they should have been wearing helmets.|
|Everyone took a turn.|
|Even Big Sis.|
|It was a beautiful day. B made|
quite a few baskets.
|Boogs loves and looks forward|
to Wednesday afternoons.
|See, I did make him wear a helmet while bike riding.|
|H had a heavy load to pull.|
|Look at those smiles of joy! Go faster H!|
