Homeschool field trip

Franci 10 Jul 2015 Homeschooling Museums Parks

One weekend in May we took the girls in to the Ancient Egyptian section of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, because in our history program we’d been studying Ancient Egypt. It was great to see many of the things we (including myself!) had been learning about in real life, and the girls seemed to really enjoy it.

Seeing that the Met is right in Central Park, we spent some time there afterward until the rain started coming down.

A fun and informative Saturday morning, despite the rain!

Yes, lovely photos, hun. In that first photo it looks like I’m wading knee-deep through the fountain with Esther and the stroller. :-)

I like Marica’s very studious look as she tours the Egyptian exhibit. : )

So glad you’re enjoying New York City again.

Wow, it’s neat that you get to complement your Egyptian studies with real live (well, dead actually) exhibits like this!
And that’s beautiful big bubble photography.

Yes, exactly what I thought - I studied that photo for a little while! All beautiful photos of beautiful subjects: both people and scenery.
