My life as an at-home momma of 3 amazing kids...it's kind of like shoveling snow in a blizzard.

Children's Museum field trip

I helped chaperone Keithen's class on a field trip to the Children's Museum on Wednesday. We spent most of our time learning about Native Americans and dinosaurs, as those will be their next units of study. They got to go back into the Paleo Lab with the scientists and see a fossil that their teacher dug up. They made pinch pots and learned about teepees. They were very amused when they found out that the kids had to go out and collect buffalo poop to burn for the fire. They got to see a program in the planetarium about the Native Americans beliefs about the stars, moon and sun.

They burned WHAT to keep warm?

Quick trip into "What If?" before we left.
