This evening I had three participants come to the lab for research sessions. It worked out that a family I called when scheduling 8 year olds, had children who were 4 and 6 as well, so I was able to test all three children in one evening. The kids were great, I thought they might get antsy having to be at the lab for a couple hours while their siblings were tested, but they were great. All three kids seemed to have a lot of fun. They were a little shy when they were in the sessions by themselves, but after all of them were done and they were back together, they were really excited and talking about how much fun they had. The 8 year old even told me that she wished she could do the study again, but she was going to be turning 9 soon so she'd be too old. It was a lot to have three sessions right in a row, but the kids were so cooperative that it really wasn't too bad. I don't have anymore sessions this week, so I'll just be heading in Friday to try to schedule some more participants. So far the scheduling has been going really well!
