Today is the anniversary of the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art
in New York City in 1872.
To celebrate they have been having a lot of fun family activities, and free family passes.
We were thinking of bringing Princess, but the weather is colder and
snow is headed our way supposedly, so we are going to pass. Farmer Dad also has a
rare (for him) cold which doesn't make plans of heading into the city any more enticing
to him.Instead, we will read books (see sidebar) and pour over the web site.
Princess often enjoys this section on the site, explore/justforfun .
I think next year we will definitely plan a trip in, but I think it would be more hassle and
aggravation this year than enjoyment for Princess, so we will hold off.
I will try to make it as fun for Princess as Yesterday was with her homeschool group's open play date.
We were the only family to attend (it is held at another member's house) and the girls had a lovely time
playing dress up, building with blocks and playing everything from board games to computer games together.
The play date before this Princess got a book on tape recommendation from the daughter (they are the same age)
and we had picked it up from the library...it was cool to hear them discussing it together as they played.
I had a lovely couple of hours talking about homeschool plans with the other Mom over a cup of coffee.
We came home for lunch and played and did some math and reading worksheets until Farmer Dad returned
from work for tea. Princess helped me get dinner ready and played computer games for a bit before we ate.
I will try to upload pictures later of any crafts or fun stuff we get done.
