Skaterboy wins the Nobel Prize...

Skaterboy went to work with my dad yesterday. He is a bio-geneticist working in medical research. Skaterboy had a good time and thought all the stuff in the real labratory were pretty darn cool. My dad sent me this picture and his announcement:

My hubby thought this was funny. He has a phd in physics and expects one of our children to cure cancer. Our 13 year old really likes science so maybe they could team up and save the world.
