We the People...are back to school!

After a gloriously long Christmas break, we are back to school.  Our first day back yesterday also happened to be our monthly Homeschool Day at the Atlanta History Center.  The theme was "We the People" -- that is, the Constitution of our country.

We watched a fabulous one-woman production about the Constitutional Convention.  She asked David to play George Washington, which made it extra fun!  (Abigail had no desire to be any of the delegates...she preferred to observe safely from the audience!)

Afterwards, the kids spent a little bit of time playing in the Olympics exhibit.  It has nothing to do with the Constitution, but it got out some energy before the ride home. :)  (Look at Abigail's left hand hanging on for rowing power -- beautiful!)

Today, being our first day back at the school table with 'real' subjects, wasn't the best school day we've ever had...but we survived and hopefully we're back in the groove now!  After a little pouting at being largely ignored, Mindy got back into the swing of school, too, and curled up for a long morning nap in her window seat next to us.

Sounds like it was a fun field trip, as usual!
