It's always interesting when you do something new. Not only did we finally make it to the aquarium, but it was our first homeschooling event, I met a friend I've only known through the world wide web, and I went to a large public place with the crew (without John). I felt like a bona fide homeschooler. There were a lot of moms and kids so I tried to introduce myself to a few people and I think it was a mixed bag.
|Checking out sediment.|
|Turner was super excited to see the sting rays!|
|The absolute favorite of the morning was the submersible. They played in here for quite some time.|
|Eli was NOT a fan of another child trying to touch Deacon.|
|Only after watching Turner would Eli used his finger to touch. Then, of course,|
true to Eli fashion, he grabs a horseshoe crab and flips it over!
|This cutie was such a trooper.|
After the aquarium, we came home to realize that I locked us out of the house (why is the key not on the key ring? I don't remember...). Mr. Eddie came to our rescue, though: he's such a sweet guy.
We topped the night with popcorn and a movie. Turner got to stay up late to read some new library books and it seems as though we've had a good day!
