Hannah wanted to go to Wonder Works Museum for her birthday! Thankfully, once a year they have a homeschoolers discount and we were able to go and enjoy the day with a few friends!! I thought I would share a few pictures for those of you who will be visiting east TN and want some fun things to do!! There are other locations in Orlando, Panama City, Myrtle Beach, Syracuse and West Nyack.

Earth Quake simulator.

The pulley system.

Tornado simulator.

Finding our street on a huge google earth screen!

The climbing wall was great fun! The kids went back and did it over and over and over again!

Even daddy took a turn!

This was new from the last time we went a few years ago – a ropes course up in the ceilings/rafters of the museum!! It was awesome and the kids did this several times, too! 

Basketball time! (they have a baseball throwing station, too.)

Space!

FRIENDS!! The best part of the day was sharing Hannah’s birthday with her friends! :)

Field Trip: Lincoln Museum

For our first field trip of this school year, we visited the Lincoln Museum that is located on the LMU campus in Harrogate, TN. Since we are learning about the Civil War time period, and all about Lincoln’s life, this was a great museum for us to visit!
**There are many of you who have emailed me over the years when you have made trips to East TN, so I have been keeping a category on my blog “East TN Fun” just for you! If you scroll through this category of posts you can see lots of different things there are to do in the eastern half of our state!

Of course Caleb’s favorite part was the weapons display in the civil war area.

This was a great museum! It didn’t take us very long to move through it, but it was definitely worth the trip!
