What a fun day yesterday was, when I went with Lindee and Emma to meet Clara and her classmates in Columbia for their field trip. We started the day out at the State Museum. I had been once years ago, but really could not remember much about it. I will definitely be going back when I have more time to check all the exhibits out. Part of the time we spent in a class about electricity. At first I thought it was a little advanced for the kids, but once they brought out all the bells and whistles, the kids were very excited about it.
From the State museum we headed to the State House. We were hoping to sit in on at least part of a session of the House of Representatives (the Senate wasn’t meeting), but the bill they were discussing wasn’t really appropriate for third graders, so that didn’t happen. Just looking in the door of the chambers, though, was pretty moving. Our government at work!
