Lab Rat

One of the fun things about living in the city is that we get some random opportunities that living elsewhere wouldn't provide. One of these is letting our daughter participate in scientific research at the local university. We got a call last week about a study on autism and they wanted our adorable daughter to be part of their control group. So, on Monday and Tuesday evenings, we brought her down to the research clinic, and they tested away. They showed her pictures and played with her while measuring her responses. Here she is in their research "cap" that measured her brainwaves. She wasn't a fan of the cap, but she loved the doctor leading the research, and of course she loved performing for the camera.
We've also been taking advantage of other random opportunities in the city. I've been scouring craigslist lately for random things that Kyle and I can do, which landed me in a research focus group on childcare earlier last week and Kyle in a mock trial group last weekend. Both were interesting, lucrative, and exhausting! We're taking the next weekend easy with relatively few pre-planned activities, so look for some fun, spontaneous pictures soon!
