I took the kids to Fernbank Museum on a field trip. When we got there, though, it seemed that half of the schools in Atlanta had the same great idea. It was packed to the gills, the worst of human nature was on full display (i.e. rude, shoving people everywhere!), and the kids could not hear anything because of the din...so we made the most of the one exhibit that was closing in a few days and then we made our escape. The kids were pretty disappointed not to have our usual leisurely enjoyment of the museum, but we got creative and found the Fernbank Science Center a couple of miles away. It was peaceful, very educational, and we plan to go back there again with more time to enjoy it! Here are the kids in front of the actual Apollo 6 command module (go here if you want to read a little history. The last section names the location!).
Abigail, unwilling to be left out of her brother's activities, tries and tries to enjoy golf but it isn't really happening yet. She declared the other day, after a very frustrating stint with an unwieldy club, that she JUST DOESN'T LIKE SPORTS! (In truth, she does like sports, both playing and watching...it was just a moment of extreme frustration!) Although I won't say this to her, it appears that she may have inherited her mother's golf skills (that is, the lack thereof)...!
Such crazy, busy days, but we enjoy being together in the midst of them!
