We went to MOSI (Musuem of Science & Industry) for free homeschool day. The Cole family joined us. Actually, we joined them since they drove all of us. Now, I know what you are saying. 9 children and 3 adults. What were you driving? A church bus??? Yup! The Coles have a big church van that seat 17. I do not know how they drive it. It was a really great trip though.
We saw the mususem and had a blast! I did notice that we need to go out with Logan again and work on him staying with us. He is always so excited that he forgets to stay with us. I suppose it is developmetally appropriate. He is working on beginning Stage 3 in RDI. That would make him at the 3 yr old level in social development. Would I expect a 3 yr old to stay with me in public? A little yes and a little no. I would expect a 3 yr old to be excited and to run ahead but I would also expect a 3 yr old to reference me every now and then to see where I was at. Logan didn't reference me at all. So, we have our new objective. Any suggestions?
After MOSI, we went letterboxing. For those unfamiliar with letterboxing, you go to a website and get clues to where the boxes are hidden. You follow the clues and find the box which usually has a stamp inside that you stamp your notebook with. Then you stamp the logbook with your family stamp and put it back. Madison said it was kinda like a treasure hunt. She felt like a pirate! Logan totally loved it! We will definetely be letterboxing more! Thanks Chris for showing us!
All in all, it was a wonderful day for us. We got to have fun at the musuem, become better friends with the Coles, and learn a new hobby. To top it off, we also got home in time to see Michael before he went to work. Life doesn't get much better than this!!!
