A Wonderful Science Filled Day

On Monday, our homeschool group took a field trip to the Adventure Science Center in Nashville, Tennessee. If you are ever passing through, this is one of the best places to go and visit! Here is Kayla and her bestest friend waiting for the rest of the group.
Stephen and Robert had fun watching this crane in the background of the window while we waited.
They have this really cool piano indoors that you can step on and play tunes on. All the kids had a blast playing on this!
Sorry for that blurry picture, but with the kids moving so quickly, I just could not get a clear shot! We also learned about the heart, brain, spine, and learning how to read an X-Ray.
This is my friend Blobby. If we did not have a spine or bones, this is what we would actually look like. Thank God that He gave us a structure!
After learning about our bodies, we hopped over to the dinosaur display. The kids always love goofing off and today was no exception! Here is my crazy son who has NO idea how to take a sane picture (he is always making some kind of face!)
Kayla decided this looked like fun so she wanted to do it too!
The archaeologists are here! Never fear! They will find that bone you are looking for!

After that, we moseyed on down to the Space Chase to learn about planets. This was the exhibit that we could not wait to get to because we have been studying Astronomy all year with Apologia. Kayla loves Jupiter!
They have this really cool "Walk in Space" zero gravity simulator that you can play on while you are there. I think that this was Robert's favorite part of the whole trip.We had a blast with our friends. If you are not part of a homeschool group, then I suggest you to find one. They have been my lifeline sometimes during our hardest parts of homeschooling! And they plan THE coolest field trips!
