The author, Tim Tingle, is a Choctaw Indian and his great-great-grandfather actually walked the Trail of Tears in 1835. On Sunday he read aloud to the Book Club from his book How I Became A Ghost and even autographed our copy.
Then the kids (and parents) were invited up to the museum's library to look at paintings and artifacts that the museum has on the subject. History coming to life.
Other fun things we did this week:
|The kids continue to love Math Club|
|We watched as astronaut Scott Kelly returned to Earth after a year-long stay on the ISS.|
|Holden LOVES his engineering class|
|Saw a 3D movie about our National Parks|
Friday nights continue to be the highlight of my week. I love spending a couple hours in the Metropolitan Museum of Art at night, when the light is different, the halls are quieter. This week Ella's class was taken into a part of the museum that we had never been before - we even had to have a special guard let us in. It's not currently open to the public. Inside the museum is an entire Quaker Meeting House! Who knew?!?
