He was in charge of buying the train tickets, deciding where we would sit and other such details. It led to a really interesting discussion on what makes a good leader...the kids thought that 'thinking of others', 'being kind', 'knowing what you are doing' and 'not being bossy' were important, as well as 'sharing' and 'not just doing it for yourself'. Wise kids.
Our first appointment at the museum was with a Canadian journalism student who was doing a research assignment on homeschooling and wanted some families to interview and film. So we did that and the children were articulate and honest in their responses to various questions about homeschooling. They also had that weird experience of having to repeat conversations so the camera could capture different angles! They did really well.
LMFAO are still pretty funny.
I lay on the grass and napped ;)
Back to the museum, where everyone could kind of do what they wanted. Christian went off exploring, Lissette, Lucky and I did the Alexander the Great treasure hunt and checked out a REAL mummy, Flex finished writing out his favourite specimen work and we all oohed and aahed over the gold nuggets, diamonds and other precious things.
And, there's always time for some dress ups.....
