This week has been wonderful; with t=my oldest two home, all the children have been making forts, playing hard outside, and making elaborate plans for what they should do on their next break from school for the holidays. We created some beautiful Remembrance Day crafts, read lots of books, and had a fun pajama day complete with teddy bears and hot chocolate, but today might have been the best day of all - Museum Day!
I was quite impressed with how engaged the children all were. They stayed together as a group, asked lots of questions, and stuck around to listen to me read them details from the exhibit's plaques. There is so much to see and do there, and it all held their interest so well - plants and animals, bugs and dinosaurs, indigenous peoples and even rocks - every topic their favorite!
I will miss the museum, as it is moving in just 3 weeks and isn't slated to reopen in its new location until the winter of 2017. It was fantastic to be able to go one more time with the children in my care, while they are still young. I have so many memories of bringing my oldest two there, and have been bringing groups of children there with me wince 2007, way back when I was nanny and we were within walking distance. I'm sad to see it go, but looking forward to visiting again with these children, and likely some new ones as well, in late 2017 or early 2018.
