A Little Disappointment
Today we were supposed to be heading to Mid America Science Museum in Hot Springs AR for Homeschool Days. We have visited the museum once before (4 years ago) and it is wonderful! It has over 100 hands on exhibits to see, touch, and explore. My older children remember it from before and have been asking to go back. For Homeschool Days, the admission was almost half of what it normally is and they were going to have special demonstrations and experiments set up. My children have been looking forward to it for weeks. Last night we even got on the website again so they could see the kind of things we would be able to do. Well, in the middle of the night last night. Christian got sick. It seems he has the stomach bug that has been going around. So needless to say we were unable to go and had to miss out on the museum today. The children were very disappointed! I hate that we missed it, but sometimes you don't have any choice. Instead, we dove into our regular ordinary schoolwork and had a normal day. I told the children that we will still get to go to the museum. We may just get up in the morning one day and I will surprise them and tell them we are going.
