The kids are getting older, and I enjoy them in museums like this a lot more now. They each hopped onto interactive computer stations and explored CT scans of mummies. They were delighted whenever they recognized something from our reading about ancient Egypt. And they had the patience to have the little signs read to them.
And then I used my iphone to search for restaurants within walking distance that had a gluten-free menu, and we walked to The Old Spaghetti Factory and enjoyed gluten free spaghetti while sitting in a historic trolley car. A very nice day in the life of homeschooling.
