On Friday, we met lots of friends at the Museum of Science and Technology where we let our kids run wild and free and took in a great physics demonstration by one of the excellent museum demonstrators/teachers. I whispered to my friend that the kids probably learned more at that demonstration than they'd learned the entire last day of school. They were all really engaged with it and two of our group got to go up as volunteers. Anna was even brave enough to risk having her face smushed by a swinging bowling ball.
I ended up coming home from the museum with more kids than I went with (thank you, Mazda 5, for making this possible). The rest of the day was a whirlwind of playing, movie, playing, tea party, playing and then a very wet walk to the library in the rain. It was such a great day and aside from two of my own kids being a bit whiny at times, everyone got along like a house on fire.
