|Enjoying some summertime fun at Discovery Cube Los Angeles|
We made a special trip to check out the science museum's Inspector Training Course, an exhibit that features a replica house and a hands-on game that has kids and grown-ups alike learning how to conserve energy and resources at home.

|CC sizes up the available games.|
|Will discovers the rain barrel.|
|Will loved pushing the button that made the shower splash (recycled) water.|
|We find out which bulb uses the most energy to light up.|
We were also able to connect what we learned at the Inspector Training Course with what we're doing at home to be eco-friendly:
* We have a recycling bin right next to the trash can, and the kids have learned what's trash and what can be re-used.
* We donate clothes and books every month, so that other kids can re-use what CC and Will have outgrown.
* We have an adorable air plant that CC has named Prince. He requires literally a spray of water per week.
* We turn off the water while we're brushing our teeth.
* And we buy energy-efficient light bulbs, have low-flow toilets and low-pressure shower heads.
What a great experience for the family!
