I love having opportunities to bring to life for my children subject areas we are studying. We have spent the last year (with a slight break this past Fall) studying Ancient Egypt. The kids were so excited to visit this exhibit. The 1 1/2 hour self guided tour flew by and I loved seeing the kids race to an artifact that they recognized from something we had studied. I am also thankful that Ava Mae was on her best behavior and loved viewing all the gold jewelry. Even better … we were not responsible for setting off any alarms from the kids trying to touch something. It was another wonderful field trip with our homeschool group!
