Natural History Museum

Cleveland just upgraded it's Natural History Museum and it is AWESOME!
These pics don't do it justice but they've wrapped much of the museum in these amazing structures and habitats for coyotes, bobcats, otters, birds, and more.
Check it out next time you're down that way!

There's even "kid-sized" structures that mimic the animal enclosures...see the bobcat structures above the girls?
So cool!

We took the biggies to their first CAVS game!
We lost HORRIBLY but had fun nonetheless!

Love our team and sharing it with our bigs!

Children's Museum of Indianapolis!

It was amazing!
If you are looking for a day trip or quick overnight-er...look no further!

Hard to tell, but you could climb up inside a model train exhibit here!

The circus exhibit was so cool!

virtual reality tightrope!

The hype was real...Indy Children's Museum

That's all I've got.
The Indy Children's Museum is ranked, consistently, in the top 3 children's museums nationally and it's the largest globally.  And wow...was it ever amazing.  We drove 5 hours and spent the night and if you have kiddos my age...I say:
It was tremendous.  
More pics coming!

Guest reader...

I did have a special guest join me in my classroom over her spring break one day.
She was the best helper ever this year!
Come back soon Addie!

Spring Break Daddy Day...

My kiddos' spring break never matches mine.  :(  
But, that means Dad always takes off a day and the kids do something super nerdy  fun.
This year, they went to the science center....and....
saw an IMAX movie

Still not sure what this thing is supposed to demonstrate, but it look sweet, right?

Fake NASA space experiment...
I mean really, rocket scientists unite...
They did bring me home French macaroons from West Side Market.
( friend Megan swears by the coconut macaroon which I deem an abomination to macaroons everywhere...she did mention they were the first macaroons...which do you prefer?_

Cutest astronauts ever!

Library Woes...

Earlier this year, Sam's lunch box thermos leaked all over a book and he had to pay to replace it.  Apparently it leaked a bit again and Sam came home with definite plans to take money to the library the next day to pay for the damages so he wouldn't 
miss checking out new books that day.
Because Sam is currently an avid bookworm.
Look at the sweet note the librarians wrote back...
