This week we've been studying Ancient Greece. We don't live too far from Nashville, so we decided to take our very first Stroud Family Field Trip to see a replica of the Parthenon!
Mary looked at her Greek books while Anna watched Disney's Hercules (again!).
And here we are! Wowzah! It's HUGE! Oh, I should mention that although it looks like Mary was just released from the hospital in her white gown, that's really her goddess dress we made a few days ago. If I had know that she was going to INSIST on wearing it on this trip, I totally would've done a MUCH better job. Ha! But she loved it, so that's all that matters, right? ;)
Statue of Athena (42 feet tall!) and Mary doing a little dance for the visitors. Very sweet.
And then my baby girl decides to do her own dance out by the columns. Too precious!
My sweet girls!
Mary loves all of the Good Times Travel Agency books we've read so far. This Ancient Greece one is a favorite right now, of course.
Since we don't have class next week, we have another week to spend on this time period. I have a few more fun things planned, but we are enjoying taking it easy right now, too. Overall, our very first family field trip was a success, thanks to God and the very-patient hubs. :) Our next family trip will be to the Tennessee Aquarium next month after we study fish. The hubs and I are SO excited about this one! Anna is ALL about some Nemo, so we know going to see the real thing will blow her mind! Can't wait!!
