One of the hard things about these really nice museums is that they don’t allow cameras. I suppose that’s ok, since I had forgotten it today, anyway, but it’s still sad that I couldn’t get pictures of the kids marveling at the different exhibits. I just love watching them learn! They’re just soaking things up! We were reading this morning about the Persians. There are some great stories! We read about King Cyrus conquering Babylon and Croesus (both really hilarious stories—if you don’t know them, you should look them up) and Claire pipes up and says, “For some reason, I just really like history!” Me, too, Claire…me, too.
Another fun thing about having the kids here, they help me do all the housework! It’s SO much easier to give everyone a toilet to clean and a sink to wash—in 15 minutes the bathrooms are livable again and I was able to do the dishes at the same time. Gotta love the benefits.
Of course, after they help me, they're always rewarded...so we went to the park by our house and played!
