Field Trips!

We took a couple of days to do some traveling around the area, taking advantage of offerings to homeschoolers. On Friday we went down to Baltimore to take part in some classes that the Science Center was offering.

 The boys just love the science center, so before the classes began, they spent some time doing "Science" stuff. Then we attended our first class. It was about the Moon. It was probably a bit on the young side for John, but the other two boys, and Henry, seemed to enjoy it. After we had lunch, the guys ran all over the place exploring the exhibits.

There is always an interest in the dinosaurs, and Brendan made a friend!

We went to a presentation in the Planetarium, and it was very interesting. I think it's so great that the boys can have time with their friends, and learn something at the same time.

I had fun too! Today we went to Cherry Crest Farm, for a great day of farm adventure! This place is amazing! There are so many things to do! The drive up was beautiful! The clouds were gorgeous and the temperature was perfect.

There was a great exhibit on bees, which were all over the place.
An overhead "goatwalk", where you could
feed the goats by sending a treat up a conveyor.
