This Month's Field Trip

     We are a part of a homeschool co-op that meets once a week for classes, and also organizes monthly field trips.  This month's field trip was to a local Air Museum.  It was neat getting to see all the old planes, especially seeing how small and precarious most of them were.  Lets just say, early pilots had to either be insane or suicidal! 

      I own a book about the Spirit of Saint Louis and Charles Lindbergh, that I have read to Anna many times, and I think this field trip helped bring that to life for her.  I showed her a newspaper clipping of Lindbergh's flight that they had displayed at the museum, and that excited her interest even more than the planes.  It just goes to show that when you have built a connection with something through books, it becomes meaningful to you.
