Over the past 2 weeks we have been field trippin' and even went moon walkin' in our little Homeschool! And I have just been either too busy photoshoppin' or cold medicine poppin' to actually post about them. So today since I am home from church sick, I am gonna make sure I get these up.
In December a friend had tickets to go and see "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" at the Nashvile Childrens Theatre downtown....it was wonderful! It is one of my kids favorite movies and they genuinely enjoyed seeing a familiar story come to life. While we were there, we decided to hit the Tennessee State Museum to see an old friend...a mummy to be exact! We have been there numerous times (it's free) and have seen the mummy dating back to 1300 BC (that somehow ended up in Nashville,TN!) many times but Maggie and Aidan have been specifically studying about Egypt and how bodies were mummified in their history so any chance I get to connect the dots in their little minds of what we are studying to something they can feast their eyes (or hands) on, I jump at it! So here are a few highlights from the trip to see the mummy....
ok, did these have to fade out with the Frontier people???
The mummy....I wish I'd thought to get a pic of his cat mummified at his feet!
Of course no outing is complete in the McManus family without a little humor...
