Last week we met with another homeschooling family at the science museum for the day. I met the mom a few years ago when we first started homeschooling but because my kids went to school part time we didn’t have much chance to get together. I’m happy we have the opportunity now because I really enjoy their company. She has a boy the same age as R and a 15 yr old daughter who J likes to follow around.
R loves to go on this power generating bicycle every time we go to the science museum. The faster he pedals the more things he turns on. You can see the radio on the right and a light bulb you can’t see, and if you pedal fast enough you get the train in the middle going.
There was also a Lego Star Wars exhibit showing. I didn’t get the best pictures, though.
A day at a museum is the best kind of homeschool day. Except I rushed out of the house because I was running late (as usual) and forgot to pack a lunch. This meant that I had to buy lunch at the museum. It made me a little cranky to pay $18.00 for three sandwiches and three drinks. Especially when the kids didn’t eat all of the sandwiches! Sheesh. I won’t be forgetting again…at least not soon.
