Something we've been looking forward to ....
We got to see the King Tut collection! We've studied Egypt so much, and we have been waiting for our chance to see the exhibit for over a year. Earlier this week the kids and I watched another King Tut documentary to get ready for seeing the real stuff.
Unfortunately, the crowds, the heat, and the dark were not conducive to Hypatia enjoying the exhibit as much as I wish she had. She did like the jewelry, and everyone was glad to see shabtis (which feature in the plot of Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos). Carbon would have happily stood and read all the tags on everything, so we had to strike a balance between the "just get me to the exit!" child and the "I'm still reading!" child.
Overall, however, a very fun Field Trip.
