It’s not something we regularly buy to enjoy at home. But it’s a sugary treat now and then when we’re out. For this family birthday, Middle Girl requested a trip downtown to the museum. See, since she was just a little girl she’s been drawn to sweetness. Sweet tea, Dr. Pepper, Coca-Cola.
Then, last year, our history studies of the 20th century featured inventions. She landed on Coca-Cola for quite a while. Making a display board, reading, learning more about the company based here in Atlanta. The morning of her birthday she awakens to streamers leading to Coke bottles.
After birthday cake we head downtown to the World of Coke.
Varsity for lunch. What’ll ya have?
- Birthdays the Easy Way. It’s how we’ve been celebrating birthdays since Eldest Girl turned five.
- Plus, this school year, we aim to start a new habit. Hopefully once a month. Field Trips within a One Hour Drive – an idea by Harmony-Art Mom… “We found a long time ago that we can explore so many different places by using a simple idea. Take a map and place a big dot on your home town. Now determine an hour’s distance from your home and draw a circle around your home at that distance. Make a list of all the places you can go that are within that hour’s distance and then start one by one giving them a try.” Please see the original post: Summer is for Hiking
Counting birthday gifts, plus these…
- Praises for good things going on at Hodgepodgedad’s work.
- Many regular activities gearing up this week: choir, piano, drama troupe and our first homeschool moms’ meeting of the year.
- A loving, serving, giving church family.
- A homeschool support group of families so willing to help others.
- And, that Littlest Guy is ok. (More to come on his adventure later…)
