My apologies that my post is so late getting up. We have spent the last 9 hours in the city exploring the British Museum and wandering the streets together as a family. It was an awesome school day and a perfect follow up to yesterday! I couldn't resist posting these three images and I hope that you like them. I shot so many pics, you may see a few more from this day before the week is out.
After our snow day last week, we bundled up once again and made our way into Central London. In history we have been studying Egypt, so we were excited to go to the British Museum to see their extensive exhibits of mummies and Egyptian artifacts. The boys were frantic busy bodies while John, Sadie and I could hardly keep up with them. For me it was rewarding because a few times they started explaining facts and stories we had learned together the past couple of weeks. It was great. Jack and I will be going back very soon. Next time, we agreed we will be taking sketch pads and pencils so we can illustrate everything that fancies us while we are there.
The top photo was taken from the top floor of the Museum looking into the court facing the library on site. The lines here still mesmerize me as I look at this image. The bottom two pics are of the kids. Each of these photos were caught when they weren't expecting it. Sadie looks like she could be anywhere else but there...and the boys in their wonder, wouldn't be anywhere else in the world. For the record, I think she had fun too! :)
A million miles away...
