Second son finished his science project with 1 d to spare. We stayed up until 10:30 (an hour and half past his bedtime) to finish up. He set up to work on the cold tile floor when there was a nice warm padded rug not 5 feet away. Also, there are tables that were available to us. But, I'll let you in on a secret, we are picking our battles...I mean, I'm picking my battles. We are entering those sensitive and oh so difficult tween years.
